International Student Resources

Int'l Students Resource Banner

As an international student studying at the University of Dayton, you are already studying abroad! You also have the opportunity to join us on programs in other countries to expand your knowledge and network. Travel, study, and work visas may provide you with some restrictions, so it is important to research your visa requirements with regards to the classes you’re taking as well as the desired country.
Questions to Consider:Student smiling and holding books
  • What is the relationship between my home country and host country?
  • Have I researched the visa requirements between my home country and host country?
  • Have I contacted International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) to touch base about my plans to study abroad? Have I discussed any requirements that need to be done to stay in compliance with my student visa?
  • What immigration documents do I need to carry with me?
  • Does my home country (or a particular organization) fund my education? If so, do they have any restrictions regarding where and when I can take courses?
