  • Welcome to International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS).

    Congratulations to all graduating students! And a warm welcome to all new students arriving for summer and fall programs.  

    From June 6 to August 12, ISSS will operate remotely. Although we will be remote, we will provide a full complement of services throughout the summer. 

    Starting August 16, ISSS will open for in-person services while continuing to provide virtual services. Additional details of ISSS operations for the fall 2022 semester will be posted in mid-summer.

    We will continue to take phone calls through our regular phone line. Please see the phone hours on the right side of this page. To meet with an ISSS advisor, you can schedule a virtual appointment through Starfish or come to Virtual Summer Drop-In Hours, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. As always, you can continue to submit your requests through iGlobal.

    Please visit this webpage as well as the accompanying webpages for information and resources related to F-1 and J-1 immigration status and benefits. It is students' and scholars' responsibility to maintain legal status in the United States at all times and to fully comply with New School policies and procedures. You should always consult an ISSS advisor about your specific situation.

    You can find answers to many of your questions in our FAQs below:

    International Student Advocacy

    ISSS continues to work with other universities and professional associations to urge our government representatives and related government agencies to take into consideration the far-reaching impact of COVID-19 on students. We will keep students informed as we learn more.
