International Students

University of Memphis welcomes students from all over the world, with 84 foreign countries currently represented in our student body. Any student enrolled at the University of Memphis who is a visa holder is considered an international student.

The Center for International Education Services (CIES) assists more than 1,000 foreign and international exchange students on our campus. The CIES supports international students by providing advice on immigration matters, employment, taxation, cultural adjustment and other practical issues. The office conducts an international student orientation each semester, coordinates insurance information and assists with International Night and other cultural functions. The office insures the University is in compliance with the United States Student and Exchange Visitor System (SEVIS) which reports directly to U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
