Congratulations on your admission to Northern Kentucky University! ISSS looks forward to welcoming you to the United States, and to our home in the heart of Highland Heights, Kentucky. As you know, international students have special responsibilities to be fulfilled during their stay in the U.S., and our office will be here to assist you each step of the way. Please take the time to review the helpful information in the pages in this section and complete any new student requirements prior to your arrival on campus. Also be sure to view the program information for the required NKU International Student Orientation, which is held a week before the start of every fall and spring semester.
