​International Students

​We believe in learning that embraces difference.

Welcome to the University of San Diego's School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES). Our community of students and faculty can't wait to get to know you, and we look forward to helping you settle in.

We share a special appreciation for the different perspectives and experiences our international students bring to our program. International experiences and cross-cultural understanding are at the heart of our endeavor to prepare students to be global citizens. Because of that, we're delighted to welcome students, faculty and staff from nearly 15 countries every year. Your presence helps our community reach across borders to form lasting connections.

Below, at the Office of International Students and Scholars page, you'll find helpful resources just for international students, such as visa information, required documents and information on your arrival to the U.S.
