About our office

Our office is proud to have been serving students since 1955!

We provide a variety of services for international students and scholars before and after their application to Southern Miss:

  • We process all applications, and evaluate foreign academic credentials and relevant materials
  • We provide orientation and counseling on immigration regulations, culture shock and adjustment to life in the United States
  • We provide assistance with immigration issues, personal and academic adversity, social and extra curricular activities, health insurance, emergencies and much more.

Throughout the academic year we offer programs in conjunction with our colleagues in the Center for International Education and for our Students and Scholars that include our annual International Food Fair, an International Holiday Dinner, special speakers, and field trips. In addition, our students participate in a variety of ways during International Education Week!
