International Admissions

#YouAreWelcomeHere

International students, who make up 5% of our student population and represent nearly 30 countries, appreciate our warm and welcoming campus where small classes allow you to receive personal attention from your professors, many of whom also come from abroad. We offer two annual, renewable scholarships that cover a minimum of 50% tuition to selected international undergraduates dedicated to furthering the #YouAreWelcomeHere message by bridging intercultural divides.
