International Student Services

International Student Services extends a warm welcome to all international students who have chosen Nicholls State University as their home for study. We look forward to meeting you and assisting you in your transition to life in the US. International Student Services supports the international population at Nicholls State by providing information and advice on U.S. immigration regulations, employment, taxation, cultural adjustment, and other practical issues.

We are also responsible for maintaining University compliance with the United States Student and Exchange Visitor System (SEVIS), a federal program which reports directly to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office. Additionally, we conduct an international student orientation each semester and assist student groups in the development of international programs and functions.

We strive to create a welcoming environment for all international students. International Student Services is dedicated to assist you in your educational needs, in your endeavor to fulfill your educational goals and in preparing you for the challenges of modern-day professional life. Contact the Office of International Student Services for information about services available to International Students.
