International Students

Our Department values the global community we enjoy, and we welcome students from all countries. We recognize that there are unique advantages and challenges to being an international student, especially as you adjust to your studies alongside a new country and new culture. We encourage all our international students to make use of the resources available to them and to seek involvement in departmental, campus, and civic communities.
