International Student Services

International Students

We are pleased that you are considering Morehouse college among options for your academic journey ahead.  It would be a joy to welcome you to the Morehouse family. The Office of International Student Services is the primary resource office for international students. Our office assists students in making the transition to the United States, to the Morehouse community and to the many resources/services available in meeting any special needs.

In the fall, a special orientation session is held by the Office of International Student Services, for new international students to instruct them about best practices, key resources and the importance of maintaining a "good" SEVIS status rating.  Employment verification, practical training opportunities, travel, taxes, and other key immigration issues are often topics for discussion.

International students are encouraged to visit the Office to keep abreast of important college and immigration information/updates. Students are also encouraged to participate in AUC International Students Organizations including the African Students Association and ISO (International Students Association).  AUC schools provide a wide range of social activities in support of international students.

Information on maintenance of your immigration status is contained on this section of the web page. Please be sure to check with the international student advisor before beginning employment or enrolling in less than twelve hours per semester. 

Ms. Maisha Gunter is a Designated School Official (DSOs), currently located in the Douglass Learning Resources Center at Morehouse.  She may be reached by email at or by phone at: (470) 639-0470.
