Welcome international families!


Family Resource Center Pre Arrival Guide

The Family Resource Center has put together a Pre-Arrival Guide for Parents to inform International Students coming to OSU with their families of what to expect and resources available to them once they get here.


INTO OSU Student Services provides a range of co-curricular programs and services promoting social, personal and academic well-being. Upon arrival at OSU, Student Services helps students settle in to life in Corvallis, provide social opportunities and a variety of resources tailored to the specific needs of international students. Whether it’s a question about making an appointment with a doctor, finding a place to live, renewing your visa or anything else, there will always be someone available to help you.

Check their Pre-Departure Guide as well for more information before arriving at OSU.
