About the Office of International Student Services
Committed To Serve ... That's the motto and attitude of the OISS. From enrollment to graduation, and even beyond, the OISS staff is committed to providing the best services possible to Regent's international student community. Although the OISS supports international students on many levels, our primary mission is three-fold:
- We provide vital services that support the F-1 immigration and adjustment needs of Regent's international student community.
- We educate and advise the University faculty, staff, and students on F-1 immigration rules, procedures, and benefits; and
- We maintain University compliance with government regulations and reporting requirements.
