Make Lipscomb University Your Home-Away-from-Home

Lipscomb University is home to students from over 45 nations. We aim to unify, uplift and educate through sharing cultures from around the world on our campus. Here, we embrace who you are and mold you into what you can be. You will not be alone but welcomed with open arms into a community that shines the light of Christ.

As a graduate student, you can still take advantage of the many campus opportunities available to grow a support network in the states while you're away from home. Our Office of Intercultural Development hosts many events focused on different cultures throughout the semester. There are also different student organizations to join. Aside from culture-based groups and events, Lipscomb has a variety of sports teams to cheer for and unique opportunities for spiritual formation.

While the items listed above are about finding community, we also have resources for you academically. The International Student Services team has a designated school official available as a resource for any questions you have about living and studying in the United States. Additionally, you can take advantage of the Academic Success Center, Career Connection Center, and other facilities available for all students.

We want you to join the Herd and become a part of Lipscomb's family. To help make things easier, we have lined out the important steps to become an international graduate student below.
