The International Student Office extends a warm welcome to all international students
and visiting scholars who have chosen or who are considering The University of Memphis
as their center for study. The International Student Office is one of the divisions
that comprise the Center for International Programs and Services. The CIPS staff assists
the now more than 1000 foreign students, scholars and professors on our campus. We
look forward to meeting you.
The International Student Office supports the international population at The University
of Memphis by providing advice on immigration matters, employment, taxation, cultural
adjustment, and other practical issues. We are also responsible for maintaining University
compliance with the United States Student and Exchange Visitor System (SEVIS) which
reports directly to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office. Additionally,
we conduct an international student orientation each semester, coordinate insurance
information, and assist student groups in the development of International Night and
other cultural functions.
