The Office of International Programming acts as a liaison to the University for international students, researchers, and professors. We support international students in a variety of capacities and serve as a resource to the University by:
- Advising international students and scholars regarding personal, immigration/visa, academic, social, and acculturation issues.
- Working with international students who participate in short-term and 2+2 programs, as well as degree-seeking students.
- Supporting and advising international and cultural groups.
- Organizing orientation programs for new students and students who study abroad.
We invite you to consider a study abroad experience as part of YOUR Cal U education. Our students have studied in Australia, Costa Rica, England, India, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Madagascar and other locations around the world. Options exist for one- to two-week programs, several weeks in the summer, or a traditional full semester abroad. The Office of International Programming works with Cal U students to find the right program in terms of academics, budget and personal interests.
California University of Pennsylvania welcomes international students from many countries each academic year. International students provide cultural diversity and bring a new perspective to the institution and the surrounding community.
A dedicated staff works to meet the needs of enrolled students and to provide each with a sense of belonging. In addition, the Office of International Programming strives to provide opportunities for the international student to experience not only American culture, but other cultures represented on campus as well.
