Overview of the ISC

The International Student Center (ISC) is a focal point for student activities and programs of a global, cultural, educational and social nature, and is a gathering place for Seattle University’s international and domestic students and student organizations. 

The ISC is committed to supporting the academic and Jesuit mission of Seattle University and the strategic priority of Global Engagement by working closely with campus partners in supporting over 865 international students from 60 countries around the world. Furthermore, the Center staff creates opportunities for all SU students to learn about each other’s culture and geographic region and identity.

The ISC plans large-scale events like International Education Week and the International Dinner while providing assistance to our international students in all matters pertaining to immigration, visa status, document certification, employment authorization and more. 

Our office also offers cultural adjustment and academic assistance to our international students and the Center encourages all domestic students to get actively involved in the International Dinner Series, and in the various international clubs at SU to ensure they are globally engaging during their SU experience.
