International Student Resources

Students from countries throughout the world are welcomed at Saint Benedict's and Saint John's. Currently there are about 240 students enrolled from about  40 countries. Efforts are made to integrate international students within all aspects of the colleges' academic and residential life.

All non-native speakers of English enrolled at Saint Benedict's or Saint John's are welcome in the English as Second Language classes, even those students who are not required to take ESL to fulfill their foreign language proficiency. Other support services offered include the ESL Coordinator, the Academic Skills Center (which includes the math skills, reading and writing centers), an international student academic advisor, international student mentors, and the International Student Program Office. The International Student Program office advises students on F-1 visa issues and also does personal and cultural student advising.
