The Office of International Affairs (OIA) provides a campus community that values diversity and promotes global education and cross-cultural understanding; programs and services that promote academic as well as personal growth and development of international students; and encourages positive interactions among foreign and domestic students. We enroll students from Africa, Europe, South America, Asia, and the Caribbean. The Office of International Affairs supports international students on a variety of levels and provides guidance on the following:
- Financial, academic, social and personal matters
- Immigration rules, regulations, and responsibilities
- Campus and community activities
- Cultural concerns
- Preparation and processing of immigration documents
- An orientation for new students
Every new international student enrolled at DSU is required to attend the International Student Orientation which helps students adjust to a new academic system, a new culture, and a new community. Even if you have had prior experience in the United States, it is crucial that students’ par take in this orientation as previous participants have enjoyed the time to meet other international students and get acquainted with new surroundings.
The OIA is located in the Grossley Hall, Room 116. We encourage all students, faculty and staff to contact our office on international related issues. We will be happy to assist in any way we can.
Once accepted to the University, students receive an acceptance package regarding the dates of New Student Orientation, the beginning of classes and additional information. Undergraduate international students are required to arrive on campus in time to participate in New Student Orientation. The academic year runs from late August through mid-May.
Semesters have the following duration:
- Fall Semester—Approximately Late August through Mid December.
- Spring Semester—Approximately Mid January 15 through Early May.
- Summer Sessions I & II —Approximately Late May 22 through Mid August as determined by the individual session.
More resources can be found on the International Students Links and the International Students Forms pages.
Office hours are 8:30am – 4:30pm EST, Monday – Friday
