The International School has always attracted a wide variety of students, in geographical, linguistic, ethnic, and intellectual terms.  We are proud of our 'internationalism' and 'global focus' and strive to build a truly international student body. The International School has an application process that reviews applicants on a rolling basis. This allows for students to apply at any time through an academic year. 

The International School of Minnesota is authorized by The Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to enroll international students who have an F-1 U.S. student visa. Contact us to find out more about becoming an international student.
