On behalf of the University of Puget Sound and the community of Tacoma, we extend to you our warmest welcome! Congratulations on your decision to study at the University of Puget Sound!

The International Student Handbook has been prepared to help incoming international students at the University of Puget Sound. It serves as a guide and a resource to ease your transition and answer your questions. If, after reading this guide, you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Office of International Programs. We are here to help you.

You should also read and become familiar with the University Bulletin and with the student handbook, The Logger. These documents detail all the University courses, rules, and procedures. Both publications are available at the Registrar's Office, room 004, in Jones Hall.

We hope your experience at the University of Puget Sound is a positive and challenging one. Best wishes on your stay here!
