Working with Internationals
Rice continues to grow, attracting the best and brightest from around the world. In doing so, it becomes necessary to continue to develop infrastructure to support the services needed for those coming from abroad, as well as to ensure immigration compliance.
Rice’s international population is represented by students and scholars from over 90 countries around the world. Our success in assisting the international population at Rice depends greatly upon your generous time, work, patience, and support.
We hope you find this gateway to be a helpful resource as you work with international students and scholars at Rice.
Please instruct all new international students and scholars to schedule a check-in appointment with OISS. This is required for immigration compliance purposes and to provide them important immigration orientation information.
