2017-2018 Graduate Catalog


International Student Services

TCU has a comprehensive program to help international students adjust to a new living environment and to share their backgrounds with U.S. students and the local community. The Office of International Services provides advice and support regarding immigration matters, academic, financial issues and cultural matters related to the experience of studying in the United States.

The Office of International Services promotes various cultural programs, from student clubs such as the International Student Association (ISA), to global programs such as Questa Terra to educational events working with faculty and local community to promote cultural awareness and TCU’s global identity.

The Office of International Services works with graduate programs providing immigration support and information for students, faculty and staff, the latter in a support role to the Office of the Provost. Graduate students are required by law to purchase the institutional insurance policy, and the Office of International Services also helps spouses and families with program and community support.

Information about admissions is found in each department within the graduate program of interest. Admitted students are expected to attend by law the International Orientation for graduate students, either in the fall or spring, depending on the semester they begin classes. The Office of International Services is located in Jarvis Hall.
