About Us

Mission and Commitment to Service

International Student and Scholar Services is a dedicated, professional team committed to supporting our international community at the University of Tennessee.

We help international students at UT navigate the F and J visa process, adjust to the campus culture, and pursue opportunities as Vol alums. We assist the campus community with the sponsorship and retention of J, H1-B, O, TN, and Permanent Resident faculty and staff. We serve as compliance liaisons between the campus community and the Student Exchange Visitor Program, provide training and advisement to campus stakeholders, and advocate for internationalization best practices.
