具有里程碑意义的大学 Welcomes 国际学生!
We are the first college in the world for 学生 who learn differently! 我们是美国认证的.S. college offering both bachelor’s 和 联系 degree programs, as well as a number of short-term (夏天) programs. Every one of our 学生 has a learning challenge or learning disability (such as dyslexia), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), 或自闭症谱系障碍(ASD). Students with a learning difference who attend 具有里程碑意义的大学 have a much higher chance of completing their college degree than the national average.
International 学生 are eligible for merit-based financial aid, 和 the award criteria is the same as the criteria for U.S. 学生. Wherever you come from, we would be happy to have you join our community!
我们提供 联系 和 学士学位. Many 学生 who complete an 联系 degree here stay to complete their bachelor’s Our small class sizes 和 focus on multisensory learning 和 skill-building ensure an education grounded in practice 和 theory 和 are designed for neurodiverse 学生 from all backgrounds.
除了学位课程, 我们提供短期选择, including 夏天 programs for high school 和 college 学生 和 a 桥的经验 for college 学生 needing a boost from our proven executive function skills 和 strategies before returning to their home colleges or transferring to other institutions to earn their degrees.
具有里程碑意义的大学 is a thriving community that embraces diversity in all its forms. We welcome international 学生 to our campus! Each international student brings their culture 和 customs to 具有里程碑意义的大学, 进一步丰富我们的社区.
We have created a safe 和 secure physical environment that can be your home away from home while you study 在美国nited States. 学生宿舍, 食堂, 学生中心, 运动健身中心, 和 other areas serve as the places you will live, 工作, 花时间和朋友在一起. Activities 和 programs both on our campus 和 throughout our region in Vermont have been developed (some by us, most by 学生) to get you together with others 和 do the things you enjoy doing. 是不是去听音乐会, 一个咖啡馆, 俱乐部会议, 一个社会项目, 一个演讲者, an athletic event on campus or hiking or skiing in Vermont’s mountains — you will find something that will spark your interest. If you don't, let us know 和 we can help start something new!
Should an international student require an F-1 student visa, they will be assisted by our 十大彩票游戏平台 office 和 team of Designated School Officials. As we have a student to staff ratio of 2:1, you will receive close support 和 attention. 申请F-1签证需要这些文件.
As our local 学生 come from all over the U.S. (our third biggest market is California), many 学生 come from a distance. 在重要的日子, 比如学年的开始和结束, 假期, 和休息时间, shuttles to the closest international airport in Hartford, 康涅狄格是可用的.
