An important message for international students (4/7/20)

F-1 Intl Students: Do you need a signature on your I-20 for travel or visa renewal? Email ipo@oxy.edu with the address where you will be for the next couple months. We’ll reprint your I-20 and send it to you.


This page is your portal to global citizenship, where you will find information for international students at Oxy, the Oxy at the United Nations program, Washington Internships, Campaign Semester and Richter Research. Prepare yourself to lead in a complex world, contribute to solving transnational problems, compete in the global workforce and thrive in intercultural environments.

Over two-thirds of Oxy students pursue one of our various routes to global citizenship: traditional study abroad or international research, fellowships and internships. View this chart for a comparison of our programs, and see a map of where Oxy students have studied abroad.
