Scam Alerts

Many students receive scam calls or emails. You may be next! Scam artists often pretend to be government employees such as Police, FBI, IRS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. They often threaten students to take an immediate action such as making a payment. U.S. government employees will NEVER call you nor email you and NEVER ask you to make payments. Please report any suspicious communication to ISS!

About ISS:

International Student Services (ISS) is a part of the Office of Global Affairs (OGA) at University of Washington Tacoma. The work of ISS is comprised of three functional areas: F-1 and J-1 Visa Student Advising, Programming and Outreach.


The International Student Services office at UW Tacoma serves F-1 and J-1 international students with non-immigrant immigration advising, programming, and support. We believe a student body rich in diversity — culturally, socially and economically — contribute significantly to a dynamic and energetic learning community for all students.
