Welcome International Students!

We would like to welcome you to Marywood University and the United States of America. Over the course of your time here at Marywood, we are sure we will get to know you better and we hope to be a source of information and comfort to you while you are away from your home.

As you prepare to come to the United States, we are sure that you have many questions. Therefore we have prepared this guide for you which includes information on what you should bring with you, travel information, our weather, housing, health and insurance information, as well as checklists on what you need to do upon your arrival. This information should be of help whether you are a graduate student, an undergraduate student, or a student studying English as a Second Language (ESL) in our Intensive English Program (IEP).

The International Affairs Office will provide more details to you when you arrive on campus. Please visit Marywood's International Affairs website for more information or contact the Office of International Affairs (IAO) (570-961-4581) with your questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!


Sincerely,

The Office of International Affairs Staff
