Fall 2021 Enrollment Requirements for International Students

Resumption of In-Person classes

As Towson will return to in-person classes in Fall 2021, international students should enroll in a full (in-person) course of study, with only one online class counting towards your full-time enrollment in the Fall 2021.

Towson University is home to over 400 international students from over 80 countries and to 30 foreign faculty, exchange scholars, and visiting faculty each year. The International Student and Scholar Office (ISSO) provides documents, services, and programs essential to a culturally diverse academic environment that enhances international learning opportunities for students, faculty, and staff.

The ISSO services remain available Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. One staff member is physically in the office Monday through Friday

We will still be: answering e-mails, processing requests made through the ISSO Portal, and available for Zoom appointments. 

Currently, our office is sending out electronic I-20s to Towson University email accounts. 

Contact us at this time via e-mail: Due to the volume of messages, please allow 2-3 business days for us to respond to your emails.
