International Students

Kon-nichuwa! Bonjour! Hola! Jambo! Hallo! Helle! Kedu! Bok! Ni hao! Helo! Zdrasvstuyte! Namaste! Ahalan! Ola! Dumela! Hello!! Greetings and welcome to our website. It is impossible to greet you in all the languages represented on our campus because we are so culturally diverse. Visit our University and sample our diversity and the rich cultures of the approximately 90 countries represented on our campus as faculty, students, and staff.

Jackson State University’s Division of International Studies (DIS) is linked to global cultural, societal, political, and economic evolution.  The purpose of the Division of International Studies is to promote educational programs and activities that enable faculty, students, and staff to participate successfully in a global society.

With rapidly increasing global interdependence Jackson State University must develop academic programs with a global outlook; programs that will:

  • Emphasize the study of different cultures and social systems.
  • Expand international collaborative exchanges that enhance instruction, research, and service.
  • Simplify and encourage the changes needed for internationalization.-
