The International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) advises and assists students through the complexities of U.S. immigration and visa and travel regulations, both prior to their arrival and throughout their stay at Smith. We assess the needs of international students and professors and facilitate their smooth transition to life at Smith and within the United States. Our office conducts programs and workshops on various topics throughout the year, and we act as a liaison and an advocate with governmental agencies and various college offices.
News & Announcements
We have a new website! As you can see, things looks a little different now. We've changed our navigation system and added quite a bit of content to the new ISSO site, and we hope it's helpful to you. Explore what's new, and if you have feedback, let us know!
By now, you may have received a few documents in the mail regarding the 2017 tax season. If you have questions, see our Taxes section of the site. For now, you can hold onto those tax documents. ISSO will email you soon with more instructions!
If you need to update your OPT information with us, please visit our Graduated Students section.
