International Students

Gettysburg College welcomes students from around the world. Currently, students from nearly 40 countries contribute to the rich academic, co-curricular, and social atmosphere of the College. Our institution values diversity, and we strongly believe that our graduates are well-rounded, global citizens prepared to do great work.

Our international students bring an exciting perspective to the campus community. They take advantage of our intimate class sizes, conduct collaborative and independent research, and develop strong relationships with an enthusiastic and accomplished faculty. With easy access to many major east coast cities, international students engage with Gettysburg's active parent and alumni network and hold externships and internships, gaining valuable practical experience.

Highly motivated, academically strong, and initiative taking students make the most of a Gettysburg education and lead lives of impact. If this sounds like you, we invite you to apply.
