About OISS

Over 5000 international students and scholars from more than 120 countries call Yale University their home away from home.  You come from Afghanistan and Zimbabwe and many places in between and you are making untold contributions to this institution.

The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is here to answer your questions and help you with any problem that you may have. We are your resource on immigration matters and our dedicated staff is here to assist you with problems concerning your immigration status, as well as with any concerns about your social and personal adjustment to life in the United States and other personal matters. Through the activities of the International Center for Yale Students and Scholars, you will have an opportunity to make valuable social connections and become acquainted with the myriad of resources at Yale and in New Haven that will make your stay enjoyable and productive.

We look forward to getting to know you and welcome your ideas about how OISS can assist you further.
