Information for International Students

We extend a special welcome to students coming to Holy Cross from beyond the United States! 

Whether you will be applying for an F-1 (student) visa, are a U.S. citizen living abroad, or a dual US citizen, you will enrich our campus community. We are excited to have you join us at the College of the Holy Cross. All international students are invited and expected to attend Gateways International Student Orientation, which is a pre-orientation program prior to Gateways Orientation for the Class of 2028.  For questions about Gateways International Student Orientation and arriving to the United States, please email Patrick Rogers, Director of Orientation and Transition, at

Class of 2028 students who require U.S. visas to study at Holy Cross should visit the Office of International Students website to learn about the Form I-20 and supporting documents you must submit through Slate.
