INFO FOR International Students

Greetings from the Office of Admissions!

Deciding to study in another country can be both exciting and scary. How do I start the process? Will I make friends?  What forms do I need to fill out? We are here to answer your questions.  Beginning with your personal Admissions Counselor and ending with your International Student Advisor, we assist you from application to graduation.

In addition to our main admissions page, which offers information about programs and visit options, please review our international application requirements and tuition and scholarship information.

Are you curious about what next steps you need to take in your university search?  If we offer your program and think we will be a good fit for you, you may wish to further explore Philadelphia and meet our current students. We also have answers to your questions on applying for and obtaining a student visa. Our checklist to attend PhilaU will also provide you with guidance from the moment you apply to the time you enroll and arrive to campus.

I hope that you find this information helpful and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions.
