Prospective students from outside the United States are more likely to be interested in both undergraduate and graduate study at NIU. Their admission may require both adherence to U.S. Federal Regulations (and related paperwork) as well as departmental support for visa applications and other regulatory functions in the home country. At NIU, the International Student and Faculty Office is available to assist chairs and directors with the navigation of the various regulatory hurdles involved. The ISFO also assists with international scholars on J-1 visas. For more information, contact Division of International Affairs.
