Comprehensive Internationalization: Student Mobility

December 30, 1899

 

​Student mobility, which refers both to the outward flow of domestic students to other countries to engage in an education abroad experience and the inward flow of international students to study at U.S. campuses, is often a focus of internationalization efforts. Orientations, re-entry programs and other support structures and activities help facilitate student adjustment and maximize learning.



  • Credit transfer policies. Students can easily earn credit for study abroad through approved programs.
  • Financial aid and funding. Student financial aid is applied to approved study abroad programs, and resources are available to help students locate additional funding. Scholarships and other funding are available for international students.
  • Orientation and re-entry programs. Orientation and re-entry programs help students maximize learning during study abroad, and integrate knowledge gained into their overall program of study. Academic and cultural orientation sessions are provided to all incoming international students.
  • Ongoing support and programs for international students. Academic and social support structures and programs facilitate international students’ full integration into campus life.
