Our institution offers innumerable opportunities for international students to be involved in cutting-edge research, have assorted teaching experiences, attend seminars by prominent scientists, participate in numerous conferences and utilize the various resources in the Maryland-Virginia-D.C. area.

The information found herein is meant to be a resource for you. You will find opinions from current international students, overviews of examinations you have to undergo, some requirements in terms of your immigration status and a useful Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section. However, be advised that everything found here, and more, can be found at the International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS). Only a few points of major importance have been included here.
