International Students

We welcome students and visitors from around the world!

Office of International Affairs

If you are not a U.S. citizen, if you do not have permanent resident status in the U.S., and if you completed all of your secondary education outside of the U.S., contact the Office of International Affairs at for information about becoming a student. We can assist with the admission process if you:

  • Are a visa holder (H, L, J, F, etc.)
  • Have academic transcripts from schools, universities, and/or colleges outside of the U.S.

If you are classified as a permanent resident or a deferred action student, your application will be processed using the same admission process as applies to domestic U.S. students, but if any academic transcripts are from outside of the U.S., they will be processed through the admission process for international students.
