International Student Advisement (ISA)
Cooper Union is proud to have a robust international community, comprising about 19% of our student body, representing over 35 countries. We know that deciding to study in the U.S. can be exciting, intimidating, and overwhelming! The Office of International Student Advisement (ISA) is here to guide you through the process of becoming an international student at Cooper. Cooper welcomes all qualified students, regardless of immigration status.
ISA serves all international students in the Cooper community by providing immigration advisement, services, and resources. Additionally, ISA works to provide engaging programming and support to all international students during their time at Cooper. The ISA Office defines an international student as anyone who is not a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident. ISA works with international students of different backgrounds, cultures, and immigration statuses.
International Students (non U.S. citizens or permanent residents) may have additional deadlines and steps to follow. All international students should also review the relevant information about next steps for studying at Cooper.
Please note, International Students do not qualify for FAFSA.
