Vision & Mission


Global engagement exists locally via UTEP’s Office of International Programs (OIP).  OIP is a meeting place for international student and scholar support and a key facilitator of our community’s cultural awareness growth through programming, services and outreach. We provide the expert means to enrich UTEP’s campus diversity while complying with federal regulations and helping our international clients understand their own obligations.


The Office of International Programs primarily assists UTEP international students, scholars, and dependent family  members to maintain their non-immigrant statuses.  We comply with federal regulations for mandatory record-keeping and reporting to federal agencies on behalf of UTEP. We provide high-quality immigration advising and services, and coordinate with university partners to assist international students and scholars in pursuing academic goals.

OIP also offers passport services for US citizens, administers the PASE tuition discount program for Mexican nationals, supplies innovative programming to enhance the university’s cross-cultural engagement, and provides international education opportunities for our UTEP and El Paso community.
