International Programs

The Office of International Programs (OIP) supports and promotes curricular and co-curricular programs, including study abroad and exchanges and international student and scholar services, in order to develop a global perspective that will equip students with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors to live and function in an increasingly interconnected global environment.

The Office serves as a clearinghouse for the dissemination of information on opportunities for experiences abroad, including study, research, internships, service, and teaching for students, faculty, and administrators. The office is responsible for coordinating experience abroad programs for WSSU students through various exchange programs like The University of North Carolina Exchange Program (UNCEP) and the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP). Opportunities are also available through approved programs at other accredited universities and study abroad providers. In addition, WSSU co-ordinates experiences abroad through faculty-led programs and direct exchanges with selected institutions abroad. Students may obtain credit for approved study abroad in their discipline or as general elective through course substitution or a general study abroad course module with departmental approval.

OIP provides support for international students and scholars on all matters related to admissions, enrollment, and/or employment processes, as well as F-1 and J-1 visa information. The office issues, updates and maintains records of all F-1 and J-1 international students and scholars. It also plans and implements activities associated with orientation, acculturation, and hosting of international students and scholars.

The Office collaborates with academic departments, program areas, schools, and other campus constituents and community agencies to organize a variety of co-curricular activities to promote global and cross-cultural knowledge. These include lectures, presentations, panels, films, exhibits and other cultural events featuring US and international scholars and personalities during International Education Week and throughout the year.
