About International Student Services (ISS)

Last updated on Feb 29, 2024

Holi CCA 1

The International Student Services (ISS) office promotes international education within the greater CCA community and supports student success at CCA.

Through education and resources, we broaden students’ understanding of US federal immigration regulations and assist students as they navigate cultural and academic transitions.

We value diversity in all forms and challenge CCA students to increase their awareness of global perspectives as an integral part of their growth into artist citizens.

What we do

The ISS Office provides resources and support in the following areas:

  • Advising for students on F-1 student visas and J-1 exchange visitor visas
  • Referrals for support services including counseling, academic coaching, and international opportunities for all CCA students
  • Faculty and staff may contact an ISS staff member with questions or concerns involving an international student
