International Students

Center for Global Learning and Engagement (CGLE) is UCA’s unit that is dedicated to supporting prospective and current international students. CGLE handles all matters related to international students, including admissions, orientation, scholarships, and off-campus employment (CPT and OPT). Please click here to make an appointment with a CGLE staff member.

The UCA International Guidebook provides important information about living in the United States and, specifically, the state of Arkansas. This is a useful resource for both prospective and current international students.
