Mission & Scope
The mission of the International Student Services (ISS) at Clayton State University is to facilitate the success of international students through: effective advising on regulatory compliance; diverse cultural, integrative and leadership opportunities; and the advocacy of cultural competence and global awareness campus wide.
International Students are Defined as:
- Any student who is not a U.S. citizen or an approved permanent resident of the U.S. and who has temporary, non-immigrant visa status in the U.S.
- Typically, these students must obtain or hold a F1 or J1 visa in good status to be lawfully present in the U.S.
- International high school students in a non-immigrant status who are already in the U.S and wish to apply to Clayton State are considered international applicants.
- Those with dual U.S. citizenship (eligible for a U.S. passport), approved permanent residents, refugee and/or political asylee status are international students for some purposes, but are not restricted to F1 and J1 visa rules. Please contact ISS if you are uncertain about your status.
