OISS Events Calendar

The OISS Events Calendar lists upcoming events, workshops, field trips and more for the semester.
Check it often to make sure you don’t miss out on something fun or informational.


Are you a “student” or a “scholar”?

Most of this site is intended for everyone to use, from Living in St. Louis to the Newsletter and everything in between.
However, immigration information is specific based on both your status and what you are doing at the university, i.e. Student or Scholar.
Make sure you understand where to look for the right information to help you.
