Meet with International Student Services

Current international students studying at St. Edward's University can meet with International Student Services staff by visiting our office during walk-in advising, 1-2pm, Monday-Friday. Or, make an appointment to meet with an advisor individually.

Make an Appointment

We understand that, as an international student, you have a lot more to worry about than your domestic counterparts. Our primary goal is to ensure you maintain valid F/J immigration status.

ISS staff serve as Designated School Official (DSO) for F-1 students. The DSO is your primary source for information on immigration rules and regulations. Another responsibility of the DSO is to keep your record in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) up-to-date, which is mandatory under U.S. federal law. To do this, we require your help.

Stay in touch with ISS! You need our approval if you ...

  • Extend or change your program, or degree
  • Intend to transfer to a new school
  • Drop below full-time enrollment
  • Need your I-20 signed for travel
  • Move to a new address
  • Want to take an internship
