International Student Support

International students are an integral part of the Harvard College community. The OIE is dedicated to providing support to our international students through academic and other student service support. We work closely with the Harvard International Office, the Admissions and Financial Aid Office, and other College and University offices to ensure that you are supported during your time as Harvard College students.
