The ISS office offers assistance with visa and i20 information, particularly for students' maintenance of visa status and employment options. Additionally, it provides pre-semester orientation for new students, adjustment workshops for continuing students, and re-entry workshops for graduating students. The office also coordinates access for international students to both University and external resources, for insurance, banking, social security, and daily life needs.

In addition, the Office of International Student Services moderates the activities of the International Student Association (ISA). The ISA seeks to foster an awareness of other cultures at the Lewis University campus, promote friendships between international students, as well as with American students, and provide support and appreciation for the international student community at Lewis University.
