International Students & Scholars

Our office is here to assist international students and scholars with questions about studying, living and working at Towson University and the Baltimore metropolitan area.

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.
