Services for International Students

Every semester, Elizabethtown College opens its doors to international students from around the world. Our current international student population represents over 30 countries and highlights our campus with valuable perspectives and cultures. Studying side-by-side with their U.S. counterparts, we encourage our International Blue Jays to share their culture and their authentic selves with our campus community. We value who you truly are and that’s who we want to see.

International Student Services offers educational and personal learning workshops and tutorials such as:

  • Maintaining your Visa Status
  • Acclimating to U.S. Culture
  • On-Campus & Off-Campus Work Opportunities
  • How to Apply for a U.S. Driver’s License
  • How to Apply for a Social Security Number

We support international students in visa and immigration advising and U.S. culture support throughout the student life cycle at Etown from before they arrive to campus, during their education, and throughout post-graduation work authorization opportunities. We’re lucky to have you for as long as we do!

International Leadership Assistants (ILA's)

ILA’s are student workers who directly support and assist international students in a variety of ways. They act as a resource to our international students, and are able to assist with questions about the campus, the community and the Etown experience. They work to make the transition to the U.S. and the international student experience as seamless as possible. ILA’s support and encourage our international students, and provide a welcoming, supportive, and safe environment for all international students to be involved in extracurricular activities and events.
