International Student Information

Although many consular services around the world are closed, please make an appointment as soon as you are able. Additionally, read the Visa Document and Application information on the International Students and Scholars new student website and complete the New Student Request through the ISSP Connect system.

Note that if you need to return to complete an application you should login through the ISSP Connect page, NOT the new student request portal.

The University will notify all students and the larger University community when plans for the Fall 2020 semester are complete. The ISO will update the ISSP website once the university has made an announcement on the Fall 2020 semester.

Since many international students will have difficulty obtaining visas for arrival into the US by the start of classes, please know that the Batten School and UVA will be working to assist international students who are unable to enter the US. This may take several forms, one of which will be to make sure you can start or complete core MPP classes remotely if necessary.
