International Programs

East Tennessee State University

Welcome to International Programs

To all International Students, 

As ETSU continues to closely monitor the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we at IPS understand the unique concerns our international students may have. Our office will work diligently to keep you informed and updated with the rapid changes during this time.

Continue to check ETSU’s coronavirus website and the Student Information website for any updates, further developments, or changes in operations to campus.

In regards to your immigration concerns, our office will send current students updates via your ETSU email so we recommend checking your emails daily. We will also provide Zoom meetings periodically for students to speak directly with the IPS staff and address their concerns.

Please see the IPS COVID-19 website, where we will provide Zoom meeting details and other information.

Your IPS staff is here for you if you have any questions, so please feel free to contact us at
