International Student Services

The University of Oklahoma International Student Services (OU ISS) has been providing services to international students for over fifty years. We assist more than 2,000 international students and their dependents from over 130 countries. ISS provides advice on issues related to student visas and US immigration regulations, as well as activities and programs to help students get involved in the international, OU, and local communities.

End of COVID-19 Enrollment Flexibilities

The US government has announced on May 12, 2023 that COVID-19 enrollment flexibilities will no longer be in place after the Summer 2023 semester. Starting in the Fall 2023 semester, all international students must meet the minimum enrollment requirements.
