International Student & Scholar Center

The UMass Dartmouth community warmly welcomes our international students and scholars. We are proud of the diversity of our international students, faculty, and scholars, representing many different countries.


The International Student & Scholar Center:

  • Provides support for visas and other immigration forms as well as required documentation for international students and scholars while in the United States.
  • Provides general advice and assistance with campus life and personal needs.
  • Offers workshops on employment and other subjects of interest.
  • Co-sponsors cultural events with other organizations on campus.


The International Student & Scholar Center (ISSC) is located in Pine Dale Residence Hall, Suite 7123. On the campus map, you'll find our location in the group of buildings marked in red in the upper left-hand corner of the map.

Visit and keep in touch: to maintain your visa status

New international students and scholars must visit the office as soon as possible after your arrival on campus. All international students and scholars must visit, call, or email the office periodically in order to maintain your visa status with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

We look forward to your visit and getting to know you.
