We understand that international students have special needs and requirments both during the admission process and during their college career. The Ivanhoe International Center (IIC) was established at the School of Mines in 1994 by alumnus Mr. Lytton F. "Buster" Ivanhoe and is the center of international activities on campus. A broad program of services is provided to international students.
The IIC coordinates orientation sessions, the English as a Second Language joint program, social activities, computer facilities and services, community and campus outreach, and the provision of newspapers and literature from native countries. The director is available to assist students with United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS, formerly known as the INS) student matters; advocacy with all campus offices, organizations, and the surrounding community; housing inquiry referrals; federal income tax requirements; and the international student list serve. The IIC also works with students who may wish to study abroad.
We're planning to add much more information to this section of the website in the weeks and months to come. So check back often!
