Student Support

The international student experience at SCA begins with our commitment to an intellectually diverse and balanced representation of cultures, learners, and passions, and continues by transforming the personal experience through inclusive and empowering programs. Our community is home to motivated students from around the world – some come to strengthen their English skills while others, already proficient and fluent in English, come for an academically challenging and supportive environment without standardization.

Our International Student Advisor is with you every step of the way, helping you make a smooth transition into the SCA. The advisor provides assistance with academics, immigration, student visas, travel arrangements, and more.
