The Office of International Student Services (ISS) is committed to the service, support, and advocacy of the international student population at FDU by providing orientation, advisement, maintenance of student records, status compliance, and educational programming.
ISS supports international student success through the following endeavors:
  • Serve as primary campus liaison between the U.S. government and F/J status holders
  • Provide relevant immigration information and updates to F/J issues to the student and campus community
  • Advise students on immigration regulations as it relates to their academic program of study
  • Promote campus services for international students
  • Engage  in cultural and educational programming

We hope that you and your family are safe and managing in these unprecedented times.  Along with an entire nation, we at International Student Service have dramatically adjusted how we live and work in the face of Covid-19.

FDU moved to virtual business operations as a precaution against the spread of Covid-19.  We want to assure you that we are still available and ready to help you.

We are still taking appointments (whether you want to speak on the phone or zoom room), we are also still processing request, with small exceptions* and advising as required.

You can still call us at 201-692-2743 to leave a message for any of      the DSO's or to request an appointment.                                

Both Campuses will be close as follows:
