• International Student
  • Welcome 

    International students are welcomed and nurtured at LaGuardia Community College. Our College represents a spectrum of ethnicities and cultures, with over 50,000 students from more than 160 countries who come each year to study, to learn, and to transform their lives.

    We understand that being away from home and studying in a different country can be challenging for students. Our Office of International Student Services (ISS) provides advising and support services to students with immigration, academic, financial, personal and cross-cultural issues to help them reach their educational goals.
