The mission of the International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) is to provide immigration and cross-cultural expertise to create a welcoming and supportive environment for all international students throughout their university experience. Because laws and regulations governing legal presence in the U.S. change frequently, it is important to consult ISSO for the latest information and to understand how it applies to your individual situation. Stop by the office periodically, check the ISSO website frequently, and carefully read the ISSO Weekly Newsletter and all ISSO emails you receive. Please note that the university will use your iastate.edu address for all official communications.
We understand. Traveling to live in a new country, while definitely exciting, can also be intimidating. You may have several questions regarding arrival times, orientation details, etc. While you will find your answers to many questions on our website, you may still need more guidance. Please reach out to Anna Nesterova at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions that you may have.
We look forward to your joining us! Go Cyclones!
