Our Logo

ISP has a multilingual staff who are well informed about educational development, personal and financial planning, cross-cultural issues, immigration rules and regulations, and community programs and resources.

The International Student Counselors assist students in designing their educational plans and prepare students for their transfer to a four-year university to continue their undergraduate education. ISP also serves many international students who have already received a bachelor's degree either from the U.S. or their home country who wish to take additional courses to improve their skills before applying to a graduate program.
