International Student Services

International Student Services (ISS) is here to provide immigration advice and cultural adjustment assistance to new and current international students at the University of Washington Bothell. International students contribute global perspectives in our classrooms and on our campus, which promotes the University of Washington Bothell’s commitment to fostering a community of global learners. We believe a student body rich in diversity--culturally, socially, and economically--significantly contributes to a dynamic and vibrant learning community for all students.
