DSO (Designated School Official)

A Designated School Official (DSO) plays a crucial role in the realm of international student services, particularly in institutions like Schiller International University that host a diverse and global student body. The DSO is an authorized representative of the university who assists international students with various aspects of their academic journey, including immigration matters.


Normally, DSOs provide guidance and support to international students to ensure compliance with U.S. immigration regulations. They assist with visa documentation, immigration status maintenance, and the transition to student life in the United States. Additionally, DSOs help students navigate the complexities of studying abroad, ensuring a smooth and enriching experience.
