Office of International Services

The Office of International Services (OIS) is the only office within the University of Pittsburgh that provides immigration-related services, and it does so for the over 4000 international visitors, students, faculty, researchers, and staff members who study, teach, conduct research, and support the many academic pursuits for which Pitt is best known.

It is the policy of the University of Pittsburgh that all international students must carry medical health insurance while a student at the University. International students have the option to purchase a University sponsored plan or provide evidence of private health insurance coverage.
