CSE welcomes international students

The College of Saint Elizabeth welcomes international students from all over the world. We have been pleased to enroll students from Bangladesh, Ireland, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Myanmar, Russia, China, Japan, Taiwan, Ecuador and a host of other countries.

International undergraduate students are encouraged to share their culture, language and traditions with the greater CSE community through the International & Multicultural Club and "Around the World" presentations.

Nestled in a beautiful, suburban historic setting, CSE is just one hour by NJ Transit train to NYC where you can explore a rich variety of cultural experiences. We hope that you will feel instantly at home at CSE and find a nurturing place where you can take advantage of great opportunities: academic, personal and professional.
