New Students

We congratulate you on your decision to study at the University of Illinois Springfield and wish you the very best academic and interpersonal experiences while you are here. This section focuses on everything related to your pre-arrival and arrival to Springfield. We hope that this information will help to prepare you for your departure from your home country and your first few weeks on campus.

Current Students

This section strives to keep all current international students with F-1 visas up to date on your legal responsibilities in the U.S. If after reading this information you still have questions please feel free to call or visit ISS for more detailed information.

Former Students

The Office of International Student Services continues to support those former students participating in Optional Practical Training (OPT), welcomes the assistance of our alumni in recruiting new international students, and encourages all to become actively involved in the UIS Alumni Association. For those able to do so, we also encourage you to give back to your University so that others can benefit from the same valuable educational experience that you received from UIS.
