International Services andEngagement

The Office of International Services and Engagement (OISE) specializes in advising international students and scholars, helping them understand and maintain their immigration and visa status, planning orientations, workshops, and other culturally diverse events that help our students thrive while adjusting to American culture and the La Verne community.


The University of La Verne is planning for a return to in-person learning in Fall 2021. (Read more) Please click on the tab on the left to read about international travel restrictions.

We are also prepared to accommodate students who will study fully online, from the United States or their home countries, and international students who currently have an Active status I-20 will be able to maintain their SEVIS status and stay in compliance with their visa regulations, as long as they are enrolled in full-time units. 

Any student wishing to study in the United States should also work with their academic advisor to make sure that they are enrolled as a full-time student, and making progress towards the completion of their degree.

The Office of International Services and Engagement will continue to closely monitor guidance related to SEVP and update you with additional information as it becomes available. You can also view the University of La Verne’s Safe Return plan for fall at
