International Student Services

International Student Services (ISS) supports international students as they strive to achieve their educational, professional, and personal objectives. International Student Advisors provide advising services with respect to immigration and visa matters, work permission, orientation, cultural adjustment, and personal concerns as well as academic advising through Academic Services. ISS helps in planning and implementing programs which increase international and multicultural knowledge and understanding at Bennington.

International Student Services remains fully operational and open; however, the physical space is closed and staff are working remotely. Students will need to email staff directly to schedule remote appointments, see below.
