International Student Services
In addition to housing, food, religious worship, sports and recreation, and other general Graduate Student Services, USC offers services tailored to the special needs and interests of international students.
The Office of International Services
The Office of International Services (OIS) supports international students and scholars as they strive to achieve their educational, professional, and personal objectives. OIS is a resource center that provides advising, information, and opportunities for involvement to help members of the USC international community make the most of their USC experience. Recognizing the many benefits of international educational exchange, OIS advocates for these benefits on campus, locally and nationally.
International Associations and Clubs
USC is home to more than 20 associations and clubs that represent the cultures of many countries worldwide. Many of these groups maintain websites that offer advice for newcomers, as well as opportunities to meet students who share your background.

The International Students Assembly works with the Office of International Services and nationality-based clubs on campus to provide educational and cultural activities that reflect the diverse interests of international students. Equally important, the Assembly helps ensure that USC students and faculty are aware of the contributions of the university’s large and diverse international community.
