Kent State International Students & Scholar Services

Welcome to International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS)

The ISSS team's primary objective is to be a resource for maintaining students' immigration statuses, acclimating to the United States, and other issues international students are facing as students at Kent State University and living in the United States. We do this through a comprehensive orientation to Kent State University, webinars, informational sessions, cultural events, and more.

COVID-19 Updates

Stay up-to-date about COVID-19 via the KSU Coronavirus Information webpage. We have also provided a COVID-19 Tips & Tricks for International Students webpage that covers:

  • Immigration Reminders (i.e., travel, enrollment, employment updates--including OPT, etc.)
  • Grocery & Food Delivery Options
  • Fun Activities at Home & Online
  • 2020 Census

Both websites will be continually updated and maintained. ISSS is still available for Phone Advising and Phone Appointments, as well.
