International Student Services

Did you know that the Providence Campus is home to more than 10,500 students from 70+ countries and 52 states and territories? It’s a big place. But it’s also a lot of fun.

International Student Services (ISS) is here to help you acclimate to college life. We offer advice on securing jobs and internships, finding housing and acclimating to college life. We'll also help you maintain your lawful visa status, understand your rights in the US and access the benefits permitted by your student visa.

In addition, our office sponsors cultural outings, trips and programs that complement classroom experiences and enrich your time at JWU. We also publish the I-News (407K PDF) where you can find the latest news and information on campus events.

For more information about the university download our International Student Handbook (431K PDF).
