International Student & Scholar Services
International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) provides advising services to students and scholars in F, J, and M status at the UND.
While maintaining legal status is the responsibility of the student/scholar, ISSS provides orientation, advising, and resources throughout an individual's time at UND. Additional services include information for faculty and staff working with international students and support for cultural programming for students and the community.
To promote the health and safety of all faculty, staff, and students, we are happy to continue to meet virtually. However, if an in-person appointment is needed, you may contact a member of our office for an appointment.
The UND International Center's Self-Service Tool is designed to help current UND international students to find and submit many requests/forms to ISSS without having to contact an advisor. If you have any questions or need advisement about immigration status, contact an international student advisor.
