International Student Advising

We are here to help you thrive! 

Welcome to you, from Los Angeles, California in the United States!  ArtCenter is proud of its vibrant and diverse student population. With more than 48 countries represented, international students make up over 30 percent of the total ArtCenter student population. The Center for the Student Experience (CSE) joins the entire campus community in creating and maintaining an environment in which students from all origins can thrive.

Studying in a foreign country can be challenging, but the CSE is here to help you with your transition to ArtCenter and American life. Please refer to the International Student Handbook as your primary resource, which contains critical information that international students must be familiar with, including maintaining F-1 student visa nonimmigrant status, understanding enrollment and academic requirements, and options for on-campus and off-campus employment. This handbook also explains other campus resources and provides off-campus information that international students have found to be very useful.

For further questions and advisement, please feel free to contact us at or 626 396-2370.

For application and admission information, prospective international students should contact the Admissions office at or 626 396-2373.
