International student services

Saint Martin's University is proud to host students from all over the world. Our international students find the campus beautiful and the people friendly.

The Office of International Programs and Development (OIPD) is dedicated to assisting you in all aspects of student life at SMU. We will work with the admissions department and residence life office to get you started. We will pick you up at the airport and provide orientation upon arrival. Throughout your life here at Saint Martin's, OIPD will provide academic and personal advising and assist you with medical insurance and immigration compliance.

Our staff organizes fun activities throughout the year to help international students explore American culture and share their culture with the Saint Martin's University community.
