International Center


The University welcomes students from around the world.  International students adds diversity, culture and synergy to many classrooms, office space, residence halls, and throughout the St. Joseph campus.  Students are committed and invested to learning from the American education system and culture, as much as we are challenged and stand to benefit from our mutual discussion, exchange of ideas, empathy, and understanding of our uniqueness.

In this section we provide resources for faculty and staff who work with international students. You can find information on credit hour requirements for international students, work restrictions for international students, and resources for teaching students who speak English as a second language. We hope this information is helpful to you.  If you have any suggestions for information you would like to see, or if you have some resources you would like to share on the site, please email Ann Rahmat, Director of International Recruitment & Student Services, at
