International Student & Scholar Services

Welcome to ISSS!

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) provides services and resources to facilitate the internationalization of Colorado State University, Fort Collins, and the greater Colorado and global communities. We strive to assist international students and scholars with cultural adjustment, academic integration, professional growth, and personal support. As part of that initiative, we oversee new international student and scholar orientation and arrival, regulatory compliance, immigration services, sponsor services, events and programming, and act as a liaison to the U.S. government.

ISSS also assists CSU departments to host international scholars who engage in collaborative research and teaching as a way to promote international exchange.
