International Students

Since 1956, LMU has had a proud tradition of enrolling international students representing more than 83 countries. The University is proud to showcase its comprehensive academic programs on the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. Students from around the globe from all spiritual, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds are welcomed to our stunning campus in the heart of Southern California and Los Angeles.

"The professors are super-helpful. You can go to office hours whenever you want. They also understand that you're international and most of these experiences are new to you."

Political Science major from India


 "I really like the small class sizes at LMU. As an international student, I'm paying the same school fees no matter where I go, so I wanted to go somewhere where I'll get my money's worth. I wanted the attention from the professors. This is a really nice study environment."
