Welcome to Trinity!

And welcome to the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS), your new home while you’re here. Wherever you’re from, whatever your story, OISS is here for you. We help our students and scholars with immigration-related matters (visas, employment authorization, forms I-20, etc.) but that is only where our work begins. We also put on a number of programs throughout the year we hope you will find fun and helpful.
