International Student Office
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.
