Services for Sponsored Students

The Office of International Students and Scholars (ISS) at Oklahoma State University (OSU) provides specialized services for students and scholars who are sponsored by various organizations, institutions, and governments. 


Rollins Reni, Coordinator of Sponsored Students, works closely with sponsors and their students to facilitate communication and ensure that requirements of fellowships and scholarships are met. She assists with immigration concerns, employment issues and the overall management of sponsor funds. She also provides broad administrative and personal support services for sponsored students and scholars.


To facilitate these services, ISS requires original copies of financial support forms and letters outlining the terms of sponsorship. Sponsors should also indicate the services they desire/require including who should be invoiced for tuition, fees, and related expenses.
