Office of International Services

International flags


International students and exchange visitors are an important part of Yeshiva University's vibrant community. More than 500 students and scholars from over 50 countries enroll each year at the graduate and undergraduate level or join the Yeshiva's community to teach and perform research.

The OISS is working remotely. We have set up a separate COVID-19 information page for members of the YU international community.  The page explains continuity of advising services, answers to to common questions, and an extensive resource list. To help us keep in touch, we ask all current F-1 students and J-1 exchange visitors to compete the OISS Travel Registry.
