The ISA is also the Primary Designated School Official (PDSO) and is required to notify the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) if an international student fails to comply with their regulations.

Study Abroad is an option for all students at Atlanta Metropolitan State College. The International Student Organization International Student Association (ISO) is dedicated to the promotion of international awareness, cultural diversity, and education.
