We care about your student success at Iowa State and in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Here are a few academic and personal resources that may be helpful to you.
LAS International Student Network
The International Student Network provides a sense of connection and community for international students in LAS through year-round programming. We host socials, like grabbing boba tea or going to the movies, and professional development opportunities, such as networking events and employer visits. Join the fun and come to our events!
LAS Director for International Student Success
Navya Mannengi serves as the LAS Director for International Student Success and is your support system throughout your whole college journey. She is here to help you achieve your academic, social or personal goals! Learn more about Navya here.
LAS Career Services
LAS Career Services can help you write a resume, search for internships, navigate on-campus career fairs, prepare for job interviews and more. Make an appointment early in your college career to see how they can assist you.
International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO)
The ISSO office provides many resources to assist you while at Iowa State. Elaine Tan is your ISSO International Advisor and can answer any questions related to immigration regulations and processes. She was born and brought up in Malaysia, and also came to the U.S. as an international student herself. Beyond providing immigration support, she is also someone who you can lean on and talk to about anything!
Academic Success Center
Academic coaching, tutoring, supplemental instruction and more. Free tutoring is provided for all international students. Visit the website at: https://www.asc.dso.iastate.edu/
The Student Job Board allows students to search for jobs that employers have posted. These are mostly hourly jobs on campus that allow students to supplement income while in school. As an international student, you can only work on campus unless you have permission from ISSO (International Students and Scholars Office) for academic related work off campus.
LAS provides scholarship opportunities for incoming freshmen, current students, and transfer students. Both domestic and international students are encouraged to apply each year during their college career. Additionally, there are departmental and university scholarships for which you can apply.
