Welcome to Western Oregon University!

We are very pleased that you have chosen to attend WOU, and we look forward to meeting you. The staff of International Student and Scholars Affairs (ISSA) is here to help you learn about and follow the F-1 and J-1 student visa regulations. There are many benefits and restrictions associated with F-1 and J-1 status, and we’ll assist you with understanding how the immigration regulations intersect with university policies.
