International Students & Scholars

Our Role Within the Global Community


Tulane University's Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) provides leadership in the internationalization of the University by supporting the Tulane international community and facilitating cross-cultural interaction. By way of support, OISS offers quality programs and services and ensures compliance with federal immigration regulations. In addition, OISS is the designated office on campus to provide immigration advising and support services to Tulane's international community, specifically individuals in F, J, and H status.

Our strong belief is that a vibrant international community enriches Tulane University and the New Orleans community and is an essential component to understanding our role within the world community.
