International Students

We are home to a lively global culture, with over 1,400 international students from more than 90 countries. We support our international graduate students with English language learning services, our dedicated international student office that can help you find housing in America, and social events so you can make friends on campus.

Our graduate student body is engaged with the global community, with many of our students traveling overseas for international graduate programs and summer faculty-led trips. We are also ranked second in the country for the number of Peace Corps volunteers our graduate programs produce each year.

Moving to America: How We Can Help

We have processes and support teams to help you…

  • Easily apply to our graduate programs: Work with our admissions counselors through each step of the process.
  • Complete your immigration process: Talk with our team at International Student & Scholar Services about how to fill out and submit your paperwork.
  • Find a place to live: We do not provide graduate student housing, but we can help you with your apartment search locally.
  • Begin your studies and fund your research: Our English Language Center provides courses to improve your English skills, and our Office of Graduate Studies can direct you to the University's research resources.

Meet Karambu Ringera

Karambu Ringera came to us from Meru, Kenya, to work on her PhD in human communication studies. While she studied with us, Karambu created an organization that supports orphans and street children in Tanzania, raising money to send 1,000 children to school.

Today, she aims to help rural Nigerian communities rethink their food production. Karambu's goal is to help these communities feed themselves so they don't have to rely on outside food sources.
