The University of Rochester’s International Services Office (ISO) provides a wide variety of services to international scholars, employees, and their families throughout our institutional divisions. Staff in the ISO are specially trained to advise on issues of maintaining non-immigrant status in the U.S., employment authorizations, domestic and international travel, along with other topics related to individual permissions and requirements. The ISO is also responsible for issuing visa documents, meeting U.S. reporting requirements, and serving as a liaison with local and national government agencies.
Additionally, the International Services Office serves as a resource for international researchers and visitors as they adjust to life in the U.S. and Rochester. Support includes cross-cultural adjustment counseling, information and referrals for local service providers, and guidance on insurance needs, taxes, healthcare access, and legal rights and responsibilities. Staff members are committed to assisting individuals and their families with a wide array of personal, professional, and immigration issues during their time at the University. Additional information and helpful resources are also maintained through the ISO website.
