Queens College - An International Student Body

Queens College is famous for the international character of its student body. Located in a residential area of Flushing in the borough of Queens--America's most ethnically diverse county--the college has students from over 150 nations. More than 90 languages can be heard spoken on campus.

Therefore, it is only natural that Queens College takes particular note of the needs of international students who choose to study there. Many of their needs are addressed by the International Students and Scholars Office. Its services include assistance with naturalization and other immigration-related cases; help with immigration and visitor documents; U.S. employment advice and authorization; extension of educational stay at the college; travel advice and authorization for entering/re-entering the U.S.; information and advice on legal, housing, financial, U.S. tax, cross-cultural, and student affairs issues.

There is also a college/city orientation program that includes information on transportation, banking, U.S. Social Security Cards, and New York State Driver's Licenses, as well as advice regarding health services and health insurance.

The Queens College International Student Community Club builds bridges between communities and cultivates a sense of harmony and solidarity among the many cultures on campus. The ISC was established with the purpose of bringing together international students from different walks of life and creating a home-away-from-home for them. By celebrating the uniqueness of each culture while emphasizing its shared values, the club helps students adapt to life in the United States.

For international students interested in attending Queens College--and who meet all of the college's admission standards except for language proficiency--the English Language Institute is a pre-matriculation program designed to increase students' potential for success through intensive English-language training. Students accepted into this program are provisionally admitted to Queens College, but first must attend the ELI. After meeting the progression standards, students can matriculate into a program of study.
