College of Public Health students graduating

International Students

Recognizing the educational enrichment that occurs in environments that include a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, the College of Public Health is committed to a diverse student body that includes students from other countries. While the number of international students in each class may vary dependent on the number and quality of the domestic applicant pool, international student applications are welcomed and encouraged.

International students should understand, however, that the college does not commit assistantships prior to matriculation. All College of Public Health students have the opportunity to apply for assistantships as they become available and are announced to continuing and accepted students. In other words, international students should not depend on securing an assistantship through the College in order to meet the requirements of the Financial Certificate for an I-20. Questions about the I-20 should be directed to the Graduate School or the Office of International Affairs.

For information about issues common to international students, please consult the UK International Center.
