Welcome to OISA!

The Office of International Student Affairs (OISA) provides holistic support and guidance on every aspect of international student life at Wesleyan—immigration, cultural, academic, financial, and personal matters. Our services include advising F-1 students on federal immigration regulations to aid in maintaining lawful status. We are committed to supporting the personal, academic, and professional growth of all self-identifying international students from orientation to up to three years beyond graduation.

The OISA team organizes International Student Orientation (ISO) for incoming students and provides ongoing support throughout each phase of their educational experience at Wes. We offer programs and events throughout the year to help international students utilize campus resources, prepare for internship and career opportunities, and build community with peers also navigating academic and social life in a new culture and corner of the globe.

OISA works in partnership with departments and groups across campus to provide international students with the information and opportunities to make the most of their academic, social, and professional experiences. We strive to empower our diverse international student community to engage in advocacy, seek out leadership opportunities, and contribute to Internationalization at Wes.
