International Recruitment & Student Services


International Recruitment and Student Services works to provide international students like you with the services, programs, and activities that will help you get the most out of your time at UAB. IRSS can help you in matters of immigration, federal and state taxation, and introduction to UAB, Birmingham, and the United States. They also serve as a resource center to promote international understanding and awareness on campus and throughout the Birmingham community.

The Smolian International House (or I-House) will be a great resource for you for support services. But it’s more than that—it’s also a focal point for programs and activities designed to bring all our students together to exchange ideas and better understand the world around us. Our similarities can be surprising, and our differences can be interesting and inspiring. You’ve come to UAB to get an education—we hope to be educated as well. We all have a lot that’s worth sharing.
