International Student and Scholar Services
Overview of International Students at CCNYWelcome to the Office of International Student & Scholar Services (OISSS). Our Office assists students and scholars who are not permanent residents of the U.S. with a variety of academic and counseling support services. We assist overseas citizens who are adapting to life in the U.S. while pursuing their education with items such as obtaining Social Security cards, employment permission, driver's licenses, bank accounts, foreign exchange permits, and military service deferrals. Professional counseling assistance is available for students with immigration concerns, or academic and personal difficulties.

In the wake of the recent and tragic earthquake in Nepal, The Office of International Student & Scholar Services offers its deepest condolences to the family members of our students. If any student is in need in any way, please do not hesitate to reach out to the office for help. We are a community and it is in times like these that we come together to support one another.
Students from Nepal will be given temporary protective status by the Department of Homeland Security. For more information please click the link below
