International Students

As an international student you are already studying abroad here at Penn State. However, you may still want to study abroad in another country while earning your degree. We highly encourage you to do so. Being of a different nationality and visa status may impact where you study abroad and the documentation you need to study in your host institution. It is important to begin the process early and work with the staff in International Student and Scholar Services in Global Programs. Your success in studying here in the United States as an international student gives you a unique perspective. Studying abroad yet again will further enhance your intercultural and potentially linguistics competency.

More information for incoming international students can be found here.



The mission of Global Engineering Engagement is to create an environment that embraces the values of international education, where access to global exposure and opportunities to develop cross-cultural competence is pervasive. We believe that it is within our reach to ensure that all engineering students can become internationally engaged.
