In an atmosphere that embraces cultural diversity and encourages social tolerance, the International House at WPI provides programs and services to assist, educate, and support international students and scholars in their transition to U.S. society and academic culture.

As of July 1, 2018 the International House is composed of three departments: 

The newly restructured Office of International Student Life (ISL) will serve all international student related immigration and cultural adjustment needs including new student orientations, work authorizations, travel signatures, and non-resident alien tax help.

The newly created Office of Faculty and Scholar Services will work in collaboration with the Provost's Office to serve the international faculty and scholars with immigration paperwork and adjustment to Worcester questions.

The English as a Second Language Program will continue to serve the needs of graduate students seeking help with English language skills. 

Resources for each department can be found in the right-side navigation menu.
