ISS Internship Program


The International Student Services (ISS) internship is a one year program intended to expose students to the various roles and responsibilities of the ISS office. Each year, ISS hires two interns. The ISS Interns have the opportunity to do the following: (1) learn basic regulatory information, particularly as related to F-1 and J-1 nonimmigrant students; (2) interact with and assist international students; (3) shadow ISS advisors to learn about the profession of international student advising; and (4) assist with the preparation for and implementation of events sponsored by ISS.  

The ISS Internship is a one-year program that begins in June and ends in May of the following year. The start and end dates are negotiable, but we prefer our interns to begin the first week of June and work through the graduation week of the following year. During the summer, our interns are encouraged to work up to 40 hours per week. During the Fall and Spring semesters, the expectation is that the interns will work between 15 and 20 hours per week. Interns also have the opportunity to work up to 40 hours per week during the winter and spring break periods. There will be occasional commitments outside of normal business hours (8:00am to 5:00pm).
