International Student Career Alliance

The International Student Career Alliance (ISCA) is a group of UO students and staff who work to support international students in developing the awareness, confidence, skills, and strategies for meaningful career development. We focus on communication and outreach, on-campus employment access and readiness, and professional and cross-cultural networking.


International Student and Scholar Services

International Student and Scholar Services provides support to more than 3,000 international students through academic and social programs, student orientation, visa and immigration help, and more. From ExplOregon and the Big Brother, Big Sister Peer Mentor Program to the International Student Advisory Board and Friendship Foundation, we are here to help you make the most of your experience at the UO.


Employment Status

We encourage international students to gain employment experience while in the U.S. You may work in most on-campus jobs, but you may only work off campus if you have advanced authorization. We know navigating the job market in a foreign country can be tricky, so we are here to help. Connect with the International Student Career Alliance and see details of F-1 visa and employment requirements and resources below.
