At International Programs, every student’s success is important to us, and with careful planning, good decisions, effective communication, hard work, adequate resources, and a supportive environment you can have a rewarding experience at UNCP.

We believe that academic success and cultivating cross-cultural skills while you are in the United States begins with proper planning and preparation before you arrive at UNCP, understanding your rights and responsibilities - as a member of the UNCP community and as an international student in the United States- and achieving a healthy balance among all the competing demands on your time while you are here.

Students should read the pertinent sections of this website and discuss any questions or concerns with an immigration advisor in the International Programs office. Most of the important immigration regulations and processes that affect your ability to stay in the US in a student status – both academic and employment related – can also be found in the links in the left-hand side bar.


The New International Student Handbook is also a good resources for students who are looking for information about student life, academics at UNCP, cultural information, and information about the local area.
