International Students

At St. Francis College, we are proud of the wide variety of cultures and ethnicities that are represented by our student body. Our international students come from all parts of the world to study in Brooklyn, NY, one of the most diverse urban areas in the United States. In close collaboration with SFC International, we are excited to welcome, and meet the varied needs of, our increasingly diverse international students.

Who is an International Student

A student is considered “international” if they are not a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. The term assigned to describe international students by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is called “F-1”, and is used interchangeably to describe both legal status and visa type.

An international student may apply as either a first-time freshman, transfer and graduate student. Transfer and graduate students can apply from home-country or U.S. institution depending on where they completed previous studies.
