We value & support international education.

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 promotes and coordinates study abroad and acts as a liaison to the university for international students, researchers and professors.

Welcome New Students and Scholars!

Prior to your arrival to CMU, we recommend reviewing the Settling in Guide for in-depth information. New international students and scholars are required to attend an orientation session, so please plan travel accordingly.
