International Education, Programs, and Services

The Center for International Programs' (CIP) mission is to advance internationalization at West Chester University and acts as the hub for all global initiatives and programs at West Chester University. The office provides guidance and assistance to international students and exchange visitors from more than 50 countries, faculty developing their own faculty-led, education-abroad programs, and all students seeking opportunities to study or conduct an internship abroad. It maintains certification from the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to issue immigration documents leading to F and J visas. The CIP is located at Mitchell Hall, 3rd Floor South.
