International Student Services

International Student Services works in concert with student services and academic departments on campus to ensure the successful matriculation and graduation of international undergraduate and graduate students as well as visiting scholars.

How We Can Help

From immigration assistance to interpersonal help, the Intercultural Center (IC) works to inform visa-possessing community members of their responsibilities and introduce them to opportunities both on and off campus. In addition, programs are designed to foster a higher level of interest and understanding of various cultures and backgrounds.

As an international student at Roger Williams University, you will find most of your questions answered, at the IC. We are located in the north end of Maple Hall, next to Global Heritage Hall (GHH).

IC Staff - What We Do

The IC staff is here to help you. We can assist you with immigration paperwork, adjusting to the United States education system and lifestyle, obtaining a social security number should you choose to work on campus, as well as any other questions you may have. The IC sponsors social and cultural trips and programs throughout the school year for our students.
