Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

The International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) office serves as the primary campus resource on immigration matters pertaining to the F and J programs. ISSS helps ensure that all F and J nonimmigrant visa holders maintain legal status and that the university is in compliance with federal regulations established for these visa categories. We facilitate cultural adjustment/transition and meaningful interactions between international students/scholars and the university community and advocate on behalf of international students, scholars, and their accompanying dependents. We collaborate across the university to advance the recruitment, enrollment and retention of international students. We serve as a resource for cross-cultural communication and international education initiatives at FAU.


  • ISSS will be the central point of contact, resources, support, advocacy, and guidance for international students and scholars at the university.
  • ISSS will be a resource and a partner to the university-wide community for international education efforts, cross-cultural communication, diversity initiatives, and culturally enriching programs.
