International Student Handbook

Dear International Students,

As overseas study is very costly, both in time and money, we are dedicated to help you take advantage of your time here. We truly understand that what you want to obtain from an overseas education is not just an academic experience, but also an active and balanced social life to become a well-rounded person. In addition to offering great academic teaching, the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) also provides opportunities for you to be involved in its active extracurricular environment. This International Student Handbook is devoted to providing useful information to help you get through the changes of being away from home and allow you to have an enjoyable experience while at UNI.  It provides information about UNI, Cedar Falls/Waterloo, and life in the U.S. in general. The information we provide here can never be enough. If you have any concerns during your time at UNI, please do not hesitate to contact the International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) directly where helpful and devoted staff members will be happy to assist you. Best wishes in pursuing your higher education goals and enjoy your time at UNI.

International Student Handbook expands on the information that you learned from "Now That You're Admitted" brochure.
