Arriving at ASU

Welcome to the International Students and Scholars Center

Choosing to study in another country is a significant decision, and adapting to a new culture and a new school can sometimes be challenging. That’s why Arizona State University created the ISSC and gave it one clear mission: provide comprehensive support to international students, scholars and faculty members.

The ISSC is an integral part of the welcoming and inclusive environment you will find at ASU. We are here to guide you with your immigration documentation, support you as you adjust to a new country and meet new friends, and to offer answers and assistance as you navigate the American university experience.

Welcome! I can’t wait to get to know you and see you around the ISSC.
