International Students

The College of Charleston has a long tradition of welcoming international students to our campus and community.  Students from all over the world call the College of Charleston their home away from home.  Currently, we have over 140 students from 34 different countries who are studying at the College of Charleston to complete a degree or as part of an exchange program. Our international students study a wide range of subjects including Accounting, Biology, Business Administration, History, International Business, Music, Political Science, and Psychology.

The Center for International Education (CIE) is the primary contact for future and current international students.  Our professional staff is here to answer your questions and help you with any questions or problems you might have.  CIE serves as your resource on immigration matters, your liaison to other campus services and also assists you with your personal adjustment to life in the U.S.
