Information for the International Community

In particular, our Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISS) provides a variety of services to our diverse array of international students and scholars and to our academic departments. In addition to building a home-away-from-home environment, OISS helps international students and scholars maintain legal status while pursuing their education and research goals, ensures the Rutgers-Newark Campus complies with federal immigration regulations governing enrollment of F-1 students and J-1 exchange visitors, and assists academic departments with their international initiatives.

We invite you to explore our website and discover the many programs we offer our students from abroad on the Rutgers University-Newark Campus.
