International Partners

The Study America Undergraduate Program offers the unique opportunity for students from your home country to apply for university study in the United States with guidance from placement experts! For over 80 years, the Institute of International Education has placed international students at universities across the United States.

Our services can adapt for interest in both degree and non-degree seeking students:

Undergraduate - Degree Program:

Competitive secondary school seniors, recent graduates, transfer students from participating countries are carefully selected by bi-national screening committees in their home countries based on academic excellence and leadership potential. Students come to the United States for up to four years of undergraduate study leading to the completion of their bachelor's degree in various fields. Colleges that accept students in this program provide F-1 visa sponsorship.

Undergraduate - Visiting Student Program:

Students of exceptional academic achievement who have completed secondary school, or who are currently enrolled in undergraduate study in their home countries are eligible to apply. Participants in the program are funded by governments, foundations and/or personal sources. US institutions provide cost-sharing in the form of partial tuition waivers. Based on the nominating country or sponsor, IIE or the US host institution would provide visa sponsorship.


The success stories of our program would not be possible without strong partnerships with international offices like you! We work with international advisors to identify fitting applicants for the program, help students to prepare their applications and provide guidance and support throughout the admissions process.

Our services allow applicants an inside knowledge of America universities and the ease of a stress-free application and admissions process! IIE handles all communication with US host institutions and advocates on the students’ behalf. Our unique relationships with 450+ US universities in all 50 states allow us to present Study America students with strong options for their studies in the US.
