We know international students bring diversity and vibrancy to the Holy Cross community, and we welcome you to visit our campus at any time to experience our inclusive culture for yourself. Once you visit, we are confident you will be further intrigued by the many opportunities for intellectual and personal growth which Holy Cross has to offer.
We seek academically talented students from around the globe who are eager to explore and experience unique learning opportunities — in and out of the classroom. Holy Cross is known for excellent teaching by talented faculty in small classroom and laboratory settings, with significant interaction and discussion with acclaimed professors. Opportunities to conduct original research independently or in conjunction with faculty are available for all students. Life on our 174-acre residential campus also provides abundant ways for students to pursue individual interests — from athletics to the arts, from faith development to student leadership positions — with support from teachers, coaches, chaplains and other mentors. The liberal arts experience at Holy Cross is an excellent foundation for life beyond college, whether you choose to further your studies in graduate school or pursue any career or vocation.
Holy Cross is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States — and the only one that devotes its resources exclusively to the undergraduate, liberal arts experience. We welcome students of all faiths and backgrounds who are interested in exploring, reflecting, and debating life’s fundamental questions.
Current international students at Holy Cross hail from 15 countries around the globe.
At Holy Cross, an international applicant is a student who is not a natural born citizen of the United States, nor a Permanent Resident of the United States, whether living internationally or in the United States. [United States citizens living abroad, Permanent Residents (Green Card holders), and Dual Citizens with one citizenship being from the United States are considered to be domestic applicants.]
