Welcome to the Division of International Programs! We invite you to use this site to find information on the departments that make up the IP division, how each serves our international students, scholars, faculty, and the wider University community. While each department has slightly different initiatives that seek to meet the mission of internationalization for our university, each department works in concert as a division to be a leader in international education.
Whether you are an American citizen looking to study abroad or you are a prospective international student inquiring about studying at one of our residential campuses, whether you are an exchange scholar attending one of our cross-cultural programs or a continuing F-1 visa holder reaching out to gain more information about Optional Practical Training, the staff and faculty that work with our departments and offices are here to assist you in making your international education goals a reality.
It is our goal to keep you informed of the many opportunities waiting for you as an international student, scholar, or exchange visitor. Whether it is through the update of this website, our international student newsletters or one of our social media sites, we strive to keep you informed of our many opportunities to get involved, engaged, and learn about our ERAU community.
The International Programs team members work tirelessly to create a sense of belonging among our growing international student and scholar community. We work with student leaders and ambassadors in multiple student organizations to ensure that your experience at Embry-Riddle is not only educative but also fun and engaging. In recognition of our efforts, the International Programs has been awarded the Senator Paul Simon Award for Campus Internationalization and the Pioneer Real Life Learning Award.
And so, welcome!
