The team in our Office of International Programs understands that international students are seeking a valuable education and a meaningful cultural experience. We are here to answer your questions and help you become acquainted with our numerous academic, cultural and social programs. We can help you find housing and adjust to American culture.
Students may pursue studies during the fall semester (beginning in late August), the spring semester (mid-January) or the summer sessions (May, June, July).
We believe you will feel right at home here!
International students who are permanent residents, in refugee status or in asylum status should apply through our admissions process for domestic students.
