In addition to the normal stresses and adjustments all new university students experience, international students face their own unique set of challenges. Being so far away from home and family can make the transition to university life significantly more difficult. Being in a new country, culture, climate and academic environment can be both exciting and overwhelming. Many international students require additional supports specific to their needs and experience.
The International Student Services Office, (ISSO), is here to support your student with this transition and for the duration of their stay at Carleton. Please visit the CU Parents website for more helpful information for parents of international students.
