The Office of International Student & Scholar Services welcomes you to Roger Williams University’s international community, which represents over 35 countries.  We invite you to use this office and website as a resource for information.  The office works with student services and academic departments across campus to ensure the success of international undergraduate, graduate, and laws students as well as visiting scholars.


The Mission of the Office of International Student & Scholar Services is to assist in the integration of international students and scholars into the RWU community along with supporting the university’s internationalization efforts.
