Welcome to Drexel University and welcome to the office of International Students and Scholars Services (ISSS). ISSS offers a vast array of programs and services to approximately 5,000 international students, scholars and faculty representing 117 different countries. The ISSS staff works to promote meaningful interaction between United States Citizens and nationals of other countries by organizing culturally enriching opportunities for all members of the Drexel community. A student’s affiliation with ISSS begins immediately after the admission process and continues well beyond graduation. ISSS staff can advise international students, scholars and faculty on immigration, cultural, financial, academic and personal concerns, and makes appropriate referrals when necessary.
