Office of International Affairs

The Office of International Affairs is an administrative unit at UTHSC, providing advice and counsel on U.S. immigration regulations and compliance. We work with international students, scholars, faculty and staff, and their families (dependents) in several non-immigrant visa categories and provide permanent residency processing for University employees.
