International Student Programs provides support and advisory services for the international community of 桃瘾社区.

Our office is dedicated to assisting international students in their adjustment to U.S. culture and education, to being a resource on immigration matters, to coordinating quality educational and social programming and much more.

桃瘾社区鈥檚 international community includes dozens of dual/U.S. citizens raised abroad, non-U.S. citizens holding non-immigrant and immigrant visas, and 200 students from more than 50 countries on F-1 student visas supported by 桃瘾社区鈥檚 International Student Programs.

New International Students Deciding whether and where to study in the United States is an exciting, challenging and important process. International students who decide to study at 桃瘾社区 can count on support from International Student Programs that is provided early and regularly throughout students鈥 preparation for their arrival in August. International Student Programs not only helps international students to prepare for and thrive while at 桃瘾社区, it helps the whole 桃瘾社区 community to be one that is aware of and supportive of the needs of international students.

Government Regulations Understanding visa processes, rules and expectations can be intimidating. The International Student Programs team possesses not only visa expertise but also a steady, reassuring philosophy when it comes to educating and supporting international students throughout the entirety of their experience at 桃瘾社区 and beyond.

The Host Family Program Everyone needs a caring "home away from home." Through the Host Family Program, American families "adopt" international students to learn from them and to love them as sojourners in our country. International Student Programs matches local families with international students from around the globe. All international students live on campus or in campus housing.
