“You also must love the foreigner, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt.”
Message from the Vice President
When a student is in a foreign country, thousands of miles away from family and friends, he/she needs support, guidance and encouragement. I'm originally from Argentina, so I've experienced this myself. At Shorter, we take care of our international students; we are a big, international family that offers support and assistance to all.
Shorter continues to attract growing numbers of international students. The International Student Photo Gallery contains pictures of Shorter's international students and activities. Choosing to be an international student at Shorter will broaden your future horizons and expand your world view.
The Office of International Programs serves as a liaison to international students studying at Shorter University. The office provides international students with helpful information regarding studying in the United States, such as embassy, visa and security requirements. Listed below are links that will help international students prepare to study in the United States.

Cuando un estudiante está en un país extranjero, a miles de kilómetros de distancia de su familia y amigos, necesita mucho apoyo. Soy originaria de Argentina, por lo tanto he experimentado esto en carne propia. En Shorter University, tenemos una gran familia internacional que siempre está atenta a las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes extranjeros.
