We provide many resources to help you thrive on campus and achieve your goals.

Center for Global Connections

The Center for Global Connections is dedicated to your smooth transition into American college life, from administrative paperwork prior to your arrival to academics and the campus social scene. We help with immigration check in and travel signatures, orientation, OPT and CTP for internships and employment, study abroad, cultural and social activities, and weekend trips.


All accepted international students receive a merit scholarship that ranges between $4,000 and $12,000. All you need to do is apply and send in your application requirements to be eligible for this scholarship award. You can renew this award every year as long as you maintain satisfactory academic progress. This scholarship is based solely on your academic success in your previous educational institution. We do NOT give out athletic scholarships or any other financial aid to non-citizens.
