The Office of International Education (OIE) is committed to supporting, promoting, and celebrating individuals in an intercultural environment. We advocate for and facilitate international and cross cultural experiences, perspectives, and initiatives. OIE is the primary contact for study abroad programs and for non-immigrant matters for all international students and scholars (professors and researchers) who are not United States citizens or permanent residents. OIE encourages both U.S. and international students to participate in international programs and events on campus, and we also welcome volunteers to participate and assist with programs sponsored by the office. Please drop by anytime and inquire about our services or browse through our research library.

Carnegie Mellon students in every major can spend a summer, semester, or year abroad. Each year, over 400 Carnegie Mellon students go to all corners of the globe, receiving credit for pre-approved study abroad for academic programs. There are a wide range of funding options.
