The Office of International Programs (OIP) supports and promotes curricular and co-curricular programs, including study abroad and exchanges and international student and scholar services, in order to develop a global perspective that will equip students with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors to live and function in an increasingly interconnected global environment.
OIP provides support for international students and scholars on all matters related to admissions, enrollment, and/or employment processes, as well as F-1 and J-1 visa information. The office issues, updates and maintains records of all F-1 and J-1 international students and scholars. It also plans and implements activities associated with orientation, acculturation, and hosting of international students and scholars.
The Office serves as a clearinghouse for the dissemination of information on opportunities for experiences abroad, including study, research, internships, service, and teaching for students, faculty, and administrators. The office is responsible for coordinating experience abroad programs for WSSU students through various exchange programs like The University of North Carolina Exchange Program (UNCEP) and the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP).
