The Franklin Pierce Experience for International Students

Franklin Pierce welcomes students from across the globe. We are a four-year private university that offers a diverse liberal arts curriculum in a beautiful New England setting that is a comfortable drive from Boston, Hartford and New York City. Overlooking Pearly Pond near Mount Monadnock, Franklin Pierce is home to approximately 1,400 undergraduate students hailing from more than 30 states and 15 countries. Graduate programs are offered at four regional satellite campuses and online.

Small classes, supportive faculty, and individual attention contribute to each student’s academic success and social experience. In this welcoming community, international students become more fluent in the English language, connect knowledge across disciplines and develop lasting friendships.

International students at Franklin Pierce readily integrate into campus life, taking part in the honors program, clubs, theatre, music and other cultural activities as well as Franklin Pierce’s athletic teams. An active International Club provides opportunities for fellowship, trips to local cultural sites and social events that attract students from all backgrounds.

Requirements for Admission

Federal law requires that we document how you will finance your education in the United States prior to issuing the I-20 form for your student visa. International Students are eligible for consideration for scholarships up to a maximum of $10,000 per year. However, this is not an automatic award and depends upon funds available. In certain instances, it will be required that prepayment of up to one year's fees be made to the University in advance of the issuance of an I-20. Total tuition and fees are available online. If you need assistance to send an international wire from a foreign bank, the following instructions will help you with S.W.I.F.T. International Payment System.
