The International Programs Office advances the college's mission to empower students to effect positive changes in the community and in the world. We provide support for international students in the areas of immigration, academics, cross-cultural challenges, and the transition to student life in the United States, striving to create a second home for students while bringing a multicultural atmosphere to the whole campus.
The International Student Handbook is an important resource for international students at Elms College. It contains helpful information and acts as a guide to customary practices in the United States. We strongly recommend every international student click on the link below and read our handbook.
