International Student and Scholar Services

JMU's International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) offers support and services to our international community. We are committed to providing timely, accurate, and helpful assistance to requests regarding visa issues, employment documents for foreign workers, and all immigration matters pertinent to the students, scholars and staff of JMU. We also provide programs and services (see our 2015 Fall Schedule) to enhance the stay of our international students and scholars, including social activities, informational sessions on issues such as culture shock, academic assistance, etc. Finally, we seek to provide educational programs to the entire campus community highlighting the numerous cultures represented on campus here and to increase awareness of cultures not currently represented.
