Welcome International Students

With students representing different countries around the world, our campus mirrors the rich diversity that is found in the global community. Penn State Scranton values the intellectual and cultural diversity that international students bring to our campus and with smaller class sizes and many opportunities to get involved, international students can submerse themselves in American culture while getting a degree.
