International Student Affairs (OISA)

International and global-nomad students compose a vibrant presence at Grinnell. Through the International Pre-Orientation Program, an active Friends of International Students program, and continued relationship building, the Office of International Student Affairs helps students from abroad feel at home in Grinnell.  Ongoing cultural programming, immigration compliance and advising, and academic and social support or referrals help international Grinnellians make the most of their educational experience.


New international students and global nomads get an early start on all things Grinnell.
