Welcome International Students!

At Grand Valley, you will be part of a university that is large enough to open a world of new possibilities but small enough to provide you with the personal support and attention you need to be ready to move forward in the world with confidence — no matter what’s next.

Your Grand Valley education will center on you — as a thinker, as a problem solver, and as a person. That way, when you graduate, you will have the knowledge, the real-world experience, and the tools to make it all work together.   Your education will prepare you to thrive in in-demand industries like engineering, business, and life sciences. Our focus on real-world experience means that nearly 8,400 students gain experience in internships and co-ops every year.

Nearly 400 international students from over 70 different countries choose to call Grand Valley home. Our safe and welcoming campuses in Allendale and Grand Rapids are located at the center of a strong West Michigan economy, and just minutes away from beautiful Lake Michigan. We offer more than 130  undergraduate and graduate degrees, with one of the most modern campuses in Michigan.
