For International Students

You are welcome here.

We are proud that 250 international students from nearly 30 countries chose to study in CCI as a way to expand their personal and professional boundaries. Our international peers enrich the global learning environment for every CCI student and for the larger Kent State community.

We welcome you to our community, where you will add to our diversity and our strength. We welcome you to our classrooms, where your insights and experiences will deepen our understanding of the world. We welcome you to our student organizations, activities and events, where your participation will help us create new collaborations and connections.

We are stronger because you are part of our CCI family, and we are proud that our family includes undergraduate and graduate students from more than 30 nations. We are grateful you chose to make CCI your Kent State University “home.”
