About SIUE and the Office of International Programs

You can become part of the excitement that is SIU Edwardsville, a nationally recognized university that educates and develops professional and community leaders through its excellent faculty and programs. With a student-teacher ratio of 17 to 1, we offer the advantages of a small, liberal arts college with the lowest tuition of all 12 of the state universities in Illinois.

Only 25 minutes from downtown St. Louis -with its nationally known Fortune 500 companies, professional sports venues, cultural offerings and transportation that puts you within minutes of just about anywhere in the Metro Area- the SIUE campus is situated on 2,660 acres of beautiful, forested woodland atop the bluffs overlooking the natural beauty of the Mississippi River's rich bottom land.

The Office of International Programs serves international students studying at SIUE and SIUE students seeking to study abroad. The staff of both International Student and Scholar Services and the Study Abroad Office look forward to the opportunity to explore ways in which we can work together to help you achieve your educational goals. Please acquaint yourself with the rich opportunities and resources available at SIUE and contact us with any questions you may have.
