Welcome to the ISSO!

The International Student Services Office (ISSO) offers services and programs that contribute to positive international experiences for all Carleton students. We are dedicated to helping international and exchange students adjust to life in Canada and to helping them get the most out of their student experience.

If you are travelling to Canada to attend Carleton, please connect with the ISSO for quarantine planning support and  assistance with navigating international travel requirements.

The ISSO supports and encourages Carleton students in gaining international exposure both locally and abroad through volunteer opportunities, international internships and co-op, and participation in exchange or study abroad programs.
