The Office of International Student Services (OISS) plays a central role in institutional immigration compliance, international student and exchange visitor strategy, international admissions and recruitment, and international student and scholar services.

Through specialized programming, OISS functions as a community touch point for Champlain’s international community and those who wish to engage in furthering their understanding of international education on Champlain College’s Burlington campus.
