International Student & Scholar Services

International Student & Scholar Services provides immigration and cultural support to F-1 and J-1 students and scholars whose affiliation with Georgetown is the basis for their U.S. immigration status. We also manage institutional compliance with federal immigration regulations and policies.

Each of Georgetown's academic units elsewhere in Washington, DC has its own IS Advisor(s).
