International Students

Hello & Welcome citizens of the world!

The Center for International Affairs is responsible for all International Studies & Programs as a “one stop shopping model” that include the following divisions: The Institute for American Language & Culture (ESL Program), overseas campuses like our affiliated campuses in Romania, Taiwan, the China US degree Programs and possibly many new locations around the globe as we grow.

The Center for International Affairs includes the international student undergraduate and graduate admissions and international scholarships awards for talented students all over the world, extended international education, global cooperation and articulation linkages that augment campus internationalization, foreign credit evaluation, study abroad and student/scholars services and programs (which include immigration counseling, foreign faculty/staff affairs, and academic and cross-cultural advising).

We serve as a liaison between all the university units and foreign governments, the US federal government’s Department of Homeland Security, global partners, foreign embassies and diplomatic missions in Washington DC and New York, public and private agencies and the community.

You are welcome to join several hundred international students from over 35 countries in one of the most dynamic educational experiences available in the United States. Your presence encourages the cross-fertilization of ideas. The University’s strategic goal is to foster the international dimension as one of its important pillars along with prestigious academic programs. This is an integral part of our pluralistic and internationally diverse campus. Our objective is simple: By creating new standards in higher education that support world peace, mutual respect and understanding, we are building an open-minded community of learners making the world a friendlier place.

TU is a university with many things to offer: a strong ESL program; a beautiful campus; extracurricular activities; scholarship opportunities; and friendly students, staff and faculty waiting to meet you!

Our international students are known on campus as VIPs : Very International Persons! At TU, you are not a number; you are a valued and respected talent. You come to learn with us but you also play the role of educator by allowing us to learn about you and your part of the world. If you want to be prepared for a successful career and better understand how the world operates, our distinguished academic faculty will give you a new perspective on the world.
