International Student Support Services

Each year, Penn State Harrisburg becomes the home of hundreds of international students from several dozen different countries. The Office of International Student Support Services (ISSS) houses the International Student Advisers and provides support services for international students in matters relating to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) paperwork, social, and cultural issues.

ISSS also provides a wide range of events and programs to help international students adjust to cultural life on campus. From the orientation program to ongoing cultural celebrations to academic support for success, ISSS is here to help our international students have a rewarding and fulfilling experience while at Penn State Harrisburg.
