International Student Services

The Office of International Student Services (OISS) is here to serve the unique needs of our growing international student population.  We work with the Office of Admissions, Academic Services (including Academic Advising), Student Life, Counseling, and others across campus while providing services including supplemental academic advising; F-1 Visa, I-20, and OPT assistance; English as a Second Language options; and cultural engagement opportunities.

HPU and the Office of International Student Services strive to provide international students with a “home away from home,” with personnel dedicated to the goal of making their academic experience extraordinary, all within the unique environment of HPU, where students live and learn in inspiring surroundings with caring professors and staff.
