International Students and Scholars

The Lewis & Clark community welcomes and supports international students.

International students play an important and integral role at Lewis & Clark. Their opinions challenge the assumptions and beliefs expressed by U.S. students and faculty members in the classroom. Their lifestyles bring cultural diversity and new ways of doing things to campus life. Their presence provides opportunities for the community to look beyond its borders.

Meet some of our international students

The Office

International Students and Scholars (ISS) is in the Student Life division, which supports students in their learning and engagement both in and out of the classroom.  ISS offers a wide variety of support programs for the 200+ international students on campus. ISS is responsible for international student admissions, financial aid, orientation, and immigration services.

The office is located on the third floor of Templeton College Center. We are open to serve students weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (including the lunch hour).
