    International Student Resources

    The Center for International Programs

    The Center for International Programs (CIP) supports international students’ transition to living and studying in the U.S.. Whether you have questions about immigration regulations, need enrollment verification, or need information about on-campus employment, the CIP is here to help you. The CIP also provides programs and activities to assist you in meeting new people, learning the local culture and improving your conversation skills. Some of the highlights of these programs include:

    International Table

    Meet with community members who are interested in learning more about your culture.

    International Conversation Partners

    Have one-on-one conversations with American students to exchange ideas, learn about one another and improve your English conversation skills.

    International Festival
