Welcome the World at PSU

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services is proud to have our students refer to us as their home away from home. We provide immigration advising, life advising, programming and support for more than 2000 international students from nearly 100 different countries.

We hope that you will make our website and offices your very first stop whenever you have questions relating to your immigration status, but also when you are looking for fun activities, for a quiet place to study or if you just need someone to talk to. Our doors are always open and we welcome you to Portland State University.

International Student Aid Fund

Paula Harris, a beloved International Student Advisor in the Office of International Student and Scholar Services, sadly passed away July 2018. During her 20 year career at PSU, she has been a steadfast supporter of our international student population. To honor Paula and acknowledge her passion for helping students, we are working to raise $10K so we can rename our student aid fund in honor of Paula. These funds provide cash assistance to international students who find themselves in a temporary period of economic hardship while here at PSU. Please consider making a donation in her name so we can make the Paula Harris International Student Aid Fund a reality as a lasting tribute to our dear friend.
