International Student Services

Our mission is to provide individualized quality-enhanced services and accurate information for international students in order to sustain an ethnically and culturally diverse campus, while minimizing legal risk to the customer and the University. International Student Services is committed to providing exemplary service and support to Norfolk State University's international students. The Office also contributes to Norfolk State University's intellectual and cultural diversity through its service to the international student promotion of international education and intercultural understanding.

To accomplish its mission, International Student Services generates required documents and processes petitions for nonimmigrant students; provides advisory and counseling services; serves as a liaison between the student and university departments, U.S. and foreign government agencies and the greater community; facilitates the assimilation of international students in the larger Norfolk community; acts as a referral source for students, staff, faculty, and the community; and provides support services and education to enhance student success.
