Our mission at International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) is to provide quality services, programs, and activities that enhance cultural awareness, enrich international educational and research opportunities, and encourage global perspectives for students, faculty, and staff.
ISSS advises international students and assists visiting international faculty and scholars in matters of immigration, federal and state taxation, and orientation to the UAB and Birmingham communities. ISSS also serves as a collaborative resource center that facilitates, promotes, and strengthens international understanding on campus and throughout the Birmingham community.
ISSS is located in the Smolian International House (affectionately known as the iHouse) at the corner of 10th Avenue and 16th Street South. We are able to provide immigration advice and assistance only to UAB departments, centers, and labs and to UAB international students, scholars, faculty, and staff. Other individuals should consult an immigration attorney.
