International Student and Scholar Services

Learning Without Borders


International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) supports internationalization at the University of Denver by serving as a resource to students, faculty, and staff in meeting the needs of the international community on campus.

Our Mission

The mission of ISSS is to assist international students and scholars to succeed academically, personally, and professionally during their time at DU, and to provide advice and support to help them remain in legal immigration status.

New Student Registration (Undergraduate)

Undergraduate international students starting in the Fall 2019 quarter will register for their classes online in July. To help students understand and complete the process, the Office of the Registrar has created the New Student Registration website. The website has answers to frequently asked questions and a handy timeline with important dates. The website also has a list of important words to understand when you are looking at class options. Make sure to review the website and vocabulary before your registration time!

International Student Orientation

Will you be new to DU for the Summer or Fall term? If you answered yes, then welcome! We are excited to meet you! As a new international student, you are required to attend the ISSS International Student Orientation. International Student Orientation is your chance to get to know Denver, explore the university campus, and learn how to maintain your immigration status.
