International Student Services
Welcome to Iona College's International Student Programs & Services (ISPS) Web page. We are happy you stopped by to learn more about our programs and services that the ISPS team offers Iona College's International Student population. The ISPS team understands the importance of having access to information. We are continuously updating the ISPS Web pages so that current and future International Students and their family members have all of the necessary information available to ensure International Students' questions and concerns are answered and addressed completely. However, if you cannot find the information you are looking for after looking through the Iona College Web site, please do not hesitate to contact any of the ISPS team members. We will be more than happy to provide you with the most appropriate information based on your questions or concerns. One of the ISPS team's goals is to reduce the stress and anxiety levels of our International Students so that they can maximize their time and enjoyment during their Iona College educational experience.
Making the decision to study abroad can be a challenging one for the International Student and his or her family. Coming to live and study in a new country that is far away in which the locals speak different languages, practice different cultures, and eat different foods can be both exciting and daunting (scary) at the same time. The ISPS team at Iona College is committed to making sure our International Students (you) feel welcomed and part of the Iona College family and experience. From the moment you start considering Iona College as your educational destination to fulfill your educational goals, the Iona College ISPS team will be with you every step of the way. You will NEVER have to feel alone, and your parents can feel reassured that their son or daughter always has someone to turn to in time of need. The Iona College ISPS team has only one priority - the International Student!
