The Office of International Services is operating remotely until further notice.
While our services are now being offered remotely to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, we will strive to provide continuity as we all navigate the changes in our lives and adjust to a new way of working and learning.
When it feels like everything has changed, remember that one thing has not - If we look out for each other, we cannot fail. So, remember to be patient with yourself and others because we are in this together. You can still reach us in the following ways:

International Student Advisors and Sponsored Student Advisors are available for in-person and phone appointments and drop-in advising each weekday. If you would like to discuss matters related to the financial sponsorship you are receiving from a government agency, company, home embassy, or home university, please schedule directly with our Sponsored Student Advisors. This may include questions about negotiating with your sponsor, billing, holds, letter requests, financial guarantees, etc.
Workshops are offered periodically throughout the term, with notifications sent via email and posted in University Plaza, Suite 130. You may register online through our appointment scheduler for in-person OPT workshops. Online workshops are available through your Canvas account.
Our International Employee and Exchange Visitors section offers immigration expertise and supports OSU's hiring of international professionals, faculty, and employees and hosting of international exchange visitors.
