International Student Services Office

The International Student Services Office (ISSO) helps international students discover new ways to connect, learn, grow and succeed. We provide support navigating resources and the unfamiliar  landscape and college culture. The ISSO helps to guide students through these and other common situations while also helping them ‘find their place’ on campus, both virtually and in-person.

Our International Student Services team advises on non-immigrant (F-1, and M-1) matters and assists international students, faculty, visiting scholars and staff in their transition to and success at MCC through orientation, educational programs and community building events.
