For International Students

Earlham College is a diverse and global community that includes students from 60+ countries. Our international students make up a critical piece of the Earlham puzzle, as they generally comprise about 20% of our student population.

As part of the Center for Global and Career Education, our international student advisers work with our students throughout their time at Earlham College, beginning from the moment they confirm, until well beyond graduation in some cases. They serve as a source of advice, support, and information on matters of immigration regulations, cultural adaptation, and practical concerns.

Terra Dotta

One of the most important Earlham resources for an international student is the Terra Dotta platform.  Here you will find information pertaining to visa, financial and academic issues as well as contact information for international student advisors.
