International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) assists international
students to be productive and contributing members of the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point community while encouraging campus and community utilization of the vast
cultural resource embodied in the university's international student population.
To these ends, we strive for excellence in providing international students and
visiting scholars with immigration services, intensive English as a second
language instruction, advising, and campus & community programming.
Helping you achieve your goals
The fundamental purpose of the ISSS, like all other divisions in Academic
Affairs, is to assist UW-Stevens Point students to achieve their educational goals. This
office's contributions to these ends are full spectrum: we promote the
university globally; recruit and admit international students; orient new
international students to UW-Stevens Point; and serve as a resource for all UW-Stevens Point students
throughout their programs of study.
Promoting understanding and friendship
The ISSS's International Friendship Program (IFP) introduces Central
Wisconsin families and UWSP international students to one another, encourages
friendships, and broadens cross-cultural knowledge and understanding.
