Welcome! The International Center for Students and Scholars assists international students, scholars and their dependents in immigration matters and adjusting to life in the United States. All new international students and scholars are required to report to our office for passport check-in upon arrival on campus. A mandatory immigration and personal safety information session is also required for all international students prior to initial registration. More information will be given to you during your orientation. Please feel free to browse through our pages to view a wide range of topics that you may need assistance on. If any of the information is difficult for you to understand or if you have specific questions, you may contact our office at (203) 576-4395 and ask to make an appointment with an International Student Advisor. We are open Monday- Friday 8:30am-4:30pm (except holidays).
