For international students, OIA assists with health insurance, housing options, orientation, and DS-2019 and Form I-20 Processing. The English Language Profiency Program (ELPP) is also part of the Office of International Affairs.
OIA representatives recruit internationally while offering Fulbright Workshops, overseas study opportunities, and MELAB testing on campus.
