International Students

Students across the globe are drawn to Mount Holyoke because of the powerful living and learning experience the College provides. This has been the case since the first international students arrived at Mount Holyoke in 1839.

Visionary educators, public figures, artists, and entrepreneurs: our international alumnae have made their mark on the world.

When you come to Mount Holyoke, you’ll live and study among the same thriving, dynamic community of thinkers and doers from around the world.

Last year, students from 61 countries— or more specifically, those who needed visas — studied at MHC. They entered as first-year, transfer, or Frances Perkins students working toward a bachelor’s degree or through other academic programs.
