Since 1954, International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) has welcomed thousands of students and scholars to AU. Our diverse staff is dedicated to a single notion: that all world-minded students deserve a global education, and that education exists here at AU.

To cultivate academic success and personal development for international students and scholars, ISSS aims at providing quality services and programs to the university community by educating, advocating and training while complying with federal regulations governing international education exchange.
