New International Students

Aloha and congratulations on your acceptance to Hawai’i Pacific University. The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) will provide you the resources needed to become a successful HPU student from immigration and cultural adjustment advising, to programming and collaboration with other HPU units. 

We encourage you to be an active participant in your responsibility to maintain your immigration status and that begins even before your arrival. Navigate this site for assistance on what you must do prior to arriving in the U.S.. The new student section will provide you information on how to obtain your SEVIS issued I-20 or DS2019, direct you to the pre-departure handbook which has important information before your arrival, guide you to the where to sign up for orientation and remind you to check in with OISS upon arrival for your immigration document check-in.

Welcome to the HPU Ohana!
