Welcome to the ISSO

The International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) supports Brandeis international students and scholars from over 104 countries around the globe. The ISSO is dedicated to supporting international students and scholars throughout their time spent in the Brandeis community.


We were pleased to see so many members of our community at the panel discussion on Executive Order 13769 restricting travel and access to USCIS benefits for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.  
 
Please note, during the discussion on Wednesday night, additional countries were brought up as being expected to join the list of original 7 countries. The source has since been deemed unsubstantiated.  At this point in time, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen are the only countries identified by an EO as being subject to travel restrictions and provisional visa revocation.

As always, the ISSO is here to help.  Please visit our office, call, or send us an email with any concerns you may have regarding immigration status in the United States.  We will either answer your questions, or in the case of individuals not sponsored on a visa through Brandeis, put you in touch with experts who are ready to help.
