Supporting Our International Students

Congratulations on your admission to 91! We extend a warm welcome and are confident that you will have a positive academic, social and cultural experience at Merrimack and in the United States.

How ISS Can Help You

The International Student Support (ISS) team is here to support you with a customized orientation and to help you navigate the requirements of your F-1 student visa status, from initial I-20 issuance to work authorization and beyond.

Over the course of your studies with Merrimack, ISS will also provide you with programs to optimize your academic, professional, social, personal, and cultural transition to college and the United States.

Students are responsible for maintaining their immigration status, so we encourage you to read through the resources on our website to become familiar with your rights and responsibilities as an F-1 student. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team at ISS@merrimack.edu.
