If you are seeking admission as F-1 student contact the International Programs & Global Education Office for an application and admission assistance. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, until one month prior to the quarterly orientation date. This allows time to obtain proper visas. International transfer students within the United States may apply up until two weeks prior to the quarterly orientation date. Mandatory orientation tailored for all new international students, including transfer students, occurs one week prior to the start of each quarter.
Many international students begin their studies in the Intensive English Program before progressing to academic programs. If you are an international student and have not completed high school in your home country you may be eligible for the international high school completion program. This allows you to take courses that will help earn high school and college credits at the same time.

student selection is the product of national best practices, bounded by state regulation, and supported by
intensive training and a dedicated, professional, highly qualified team. One point to emphasize is that meeting
