The Cooper Union is proud to have a robust international community, comprising approximately 19% of our student body and representing more than 35 countries. Each year The Cooper Union welcomes international students from around the world to study in our undergraduate and graduate programs. If you are interested in attending The Cooper Union, the first step is to research the Apply to Cooper Union page for information on available programs of study.
The mission of the International Student Services Office (ISSO) is to provide services and programs for the international community at The Cooper Union. This support includes advisement on immigration, visa matters, work permission, orientation, cultural adjustment, and general resources. ISSO supports the University’s overall internationalization and helps facilitate the integration and assimilation of international students into the Cooper Union community.
International Students (non-U.S. citizens or permanent residents) may have additional deadlines and steps to follow. All international students should review the relevant information about the next steps for studying at Cooper.
