The Notre Dame community is enriched by the presence and engagement of our international students, and our work at International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) includes a commitment to ensure that students are also enriched by and supported within our community. The additional logistics that international students must navigate, including the responsibilities associated with student visas and the experience of cultural adjustment, look different for each student, but often add an additional layer to their work as scholars and community builders.
We have highlighted essential information on these pages, including:
- Getting Started (including how to apply for a visa)
