The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) continues to play a critical role in serving and providing a hub for USD's international student and scholar community, currently numbering over a thousand, and representing at least 90 different countries around the world. 


This fall 2019 semester, USD will be welcoming 43 new freshmen and 45 transfer students, nine double-degree undergraduate business students (earning degrees from both USD and its institutional partners abroad), 73 new graduate students, and 86 exchange students (graduate and undergraduate). The countries with the largest representation within our population of newly arrived students (degree-seeking and exchange) are Spain, Kuwait, China, Brazil, Portugal, and Saudi Arabia.
