International students studying at EMU on a F-1 visa should consult the Cross-Cultural Programs staff for details about fulfilling the cross-cultural requirement. Please contact the international student adviser also to make sure you have the appropriate documents, signatures, and a valid visa to reenter the US.
For international students who plan to participate in an EMU cross-cultural program, there are potentially extra steps in preparing.
- Students should begin to make plans early— around nine months in advance— to allow for sufficient time in acquiring documents.
- Communicate with your faculty leader(s) about your plans and identify the necessary visa(s) and vaccination(s) you will need.
- The Cross-Cultural Programs office is able to provide letters of support as students apply for visas.
- Ultimately, the student is responsible for making the necessary arrangements for their travel.
