The Center for International Education
The Center for International Education (CIE) provides support to students interested in study abroad opportunities and serves the needs of incoming international students.
CIE administers a wide variety of UMW Faculty-Led Programs and four Exchange Programs. In addition to these popular programs, students desiring an educational experience abroad to study, intern, volunteer, or do academic research, may select from a host of UMW Approved Programs offered by both Education Abroad Providers and international universities. UMW students can study abroad for a semester or academic year, over the summer, or during the spring and winter breaks to earn academic credits toward their graduation requirements. You can get there from here!
CIE serves the needs of international students by providing immigration admissions services. Our staff guide international students through the process of obtaining their visas, maintaining status, and transitioning easily to life at UMW. CIE’s UMW World is a community of international students and UMW study abroad alumni which hosts events to facilitate fellowship and exciting cultural experiences; it includes InterLink, which allows UMW student mentors to welcome incoming international students and help ease their transition to campus life.
