Due to SAC Day meetings, PCC and the OISS will be closed for services on Wednesday, October 27. We will resume regular business hours on Thursday, October 28, 2021.

The Office of International Student Services (OISS) welcomes you!

The OISS puts F-1 international students at the center of all we do! We connect with prospective students to inform them about the many opportunities at PCC. We also assist with the admissions process and give them a great start to their academic path via the New International Student Week each term. We provide guidance to current international students in maintaining their F-1 visa status while studying, during Optional Practical Training, and in the transfer process. In addition, we bring international and domestic students together through our robust student life activities and events as well as the many student leadership positions we offer. The OISS support extends to PCC faculty and staff as well. — Check out these web pages for helpful information and contact us with any questions you might have. Our staff have extensive experience in global education and look forward to connecting with you!

During this time, the OISS remains available to help international students through phone, email, and virtual appointments.
