Office of International Programs

The UTSA Office of International Programs assists both international and domestic students and scholars understand the world in terms other than their own.


The Office of International Programs enhances cross-cultural understanding among students by welcoming and supporting international students and scholars who are attending UTSA from other countries while assisting them in meeting the visa requirements set forth by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service and the U.S. Department of State.

We also help UTSA students interested in participating in educational opportunities abroad, strengthening scholarly UTSA exchange programs with universities in other countries, and influencing university policy toward embracing and institutionalizing the internationalization of UTSA curriculum, faculty, and student body.

International Undergraduate Student Admissions assists international students who are interested in applying to UTSA as undergraduate students. This department processes applications, examines test scores and makes the determination on acceptance of undergraduate international students to UTSA.

Want to study in another country? Education Abroad Services helps you to participate in a UTSA faculty-led program, or attend a partner university for a semester or a full academic year. Undergraduate and graduate students can study abroad!
