As an International Student, the links below will provide you with valuable resources as you study with us here.
You'll want to be sure to attend our three day International Orientation, as this is where you will receive an up-to-date checklist of any remaining documents or processes you may need to complete. For details on transportation to campus, housing, meal plans and other pertinent information please explore the "Arriving at Western" link below. Additional information on Optional Practical Traning and Curricular Practical Traning is available for F-1 visa students.
Note: We do require all new International Students to arrive on-campus approximately one week prior to classes starting. This is so you will have ample time to attend orientation, get settled in your new home and discover the community here in Cullowhee, North Carolina.
