Office of International Students and Scholars

:

Welcome to the University of Nevada, Reno and to a vibrant global community of students and scholars representing over 70 nations! The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) provides information and advice regarding visa categories, international student admission, employment options, and cultural adjustment. Programs and activities are offered that foster intercultural understanding and enhance the skills needed to be successful in an increasingly interconnected world.

In light of recent events in west Africa, the student health center has provided an Ebola information handout to the OISS.  This information is particularly important for anybody who has traveled in the countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia and Nigeria. If you have traveled to any of these countries please be sure to read the information on the handout, and report to your healthcare provider before going to any facilities for treatment of symptoms.
