The Office of International Education (OIE) facilitates transformative international experiences for Harvard College students.

To do this, the OIE:

1. Provides advising and support to international students in their academic, co-curricular and extracurricular pursuits while at Harvard College. In collaboration­­ with offices and departments across campus, the OIE facilitates connection so students may access the variety of resources Harvard offers.

2. Provides advising and support to students interested in studying abroad, one of the co-curricular pillars of a Harvard experience, for an academic year, semester, or summer. Through individualized advising, the OIE facilitates program selection, academic planning, credit assessment and credit transfer. Prior to departure and while abroad, the OIE supports students’ health and safety, academic, and other needs, to ensure a successful international experience. 

The Office of International Education is open throughout the summer and available for appointments. To request a virtual appointment, please email an adviser at
