Center for Multicultural Affairs

International Student Services

International Student Services is a division of Student Academic Affairs. These programs provide a wide range of services to matriculated Marist undergraduate and graduate students from around the world. They include comprehensive orientation programs at the beginning of each semester, an American Culture and Language seminar for all new international students, and special academic programs that provide students with the additional guidance they need as they adjust to a new educational system. Both undergraduate and graduate students attend informational workshops each semester and are encouraged to participate in cultural events. All undergraduate international students have a secondary academic advisor in the Office of International Students Services.

Exchange international students from partner institutions are welcome at Marist College. The Exchange International Student Program, administered by the Office of International Student Services in conjunction with Marist Abroad, is responsible for coordinating aspects of the exchange students’ stay, from before orientation to beyond completion of their course of study at Marist.

The Center counsels and advocates for international students, both on campus and in the larger community. It is our goal to promote cultural awareness on campus and to provide international students with a productive and nurturing learning environment.

International Student Orientation will begin the week prior to the start of classes.
