The International Programs Office

The Office of International Programs was established to provide academic, social and transitional support for international students and for Dickinson State University students who are studying and living abroad.

We assists students with the admission process and administers the Global Awareness Tuition Waiver Program. Furthermore, the staff organizes campus and community activities designed to integrate students to campus and community life. An example of such activities is the annual Global Awareness month, International Education Week and the Friendship Family Program.

International Student Support Services
Currently, there are nearly 100 international students and scholars representing 26 countries enrolled at DSU. Although their reasons for coming to DSU may vary, their reason for staying is primarily the same: at DSU students get the support they need to succeed. The International Programs staff is committed to helping students through every stage of their academic career, including admissions.

Global Awareness Tuition Waiver Program
The DSU Global Awareness Tuition Waiver provides tuition assistance for qualified and dedicated international students who desire to study at a progressive, student centered American university. The waiver is renewable and covers up to 53% of annual tuition costs. In order to maintain the waiver, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and successfully complete 12 credits per semester and 24 credits per year.

International Flag Plaza and Walk of Pride
The University’s Foundation funded design and construction of an International Flag Plaza and Alumni Walk of Pride as its 50th Anniversary project. The Plaza features the flags of each enrolled international student. This beautiful plaza, located adjacent to the Student Center, serves as a highly visible reminder of our commitment to global awareness. 


Study Abroad
DSU currently has Study Abroad opportunities through affiliated partnerships. In addition, instructor lead study abroad opportunities are being developed and offered for credit. In the summer of 2015, a group of students will travel to China for a business and culture program offered directly to DSU students.
