About

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISSS) serves as a resource to admitted international students, faculty and researchers and their families as well as academic departments, and other administrative offices on and off campus.

The mission of the Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISSS) is to support the University’s internationalization and to facilitate the integration of international students and scholars into the Brown community. OISSS provides advising services with respect to immigration and visa matters, work permission, orientation, cultural adjustment and personal concerns. OISSS provides consulting services to hiring academic departments, and handles the immigration related aspects of the hiring process for nonimmigrant faculty, researchers, and staff.

OISSS is organized under the Office of Global Engagement (OGE).
