Virginia Tech and the College of Architecture, Arts, and Design have a vibrant history of international student engagement and attendance. In fact, almost 130 countries are represented at the university, with AAD faculty and students representing more than 20 different nationalities. We're proud of the college's diversity of thought, experience, and cultures, and it's something we celebrate and continually seek to expand.

For our international students, Cranwell International Center is an important resource. The center offers extensive support services and programs for prospective and current international students, both undergraduate and graduate.

Resources for Prospective International Students

As an international student, applying to Virginia Tech and a program within AAD may feel intimidating, but we're here to help. In addition to Cranwell International Center, additional resources for prospective international students as well as information on requirements, transcripts, records, and immigrations services are available through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Graduate School.
