International Students


Students from all over the world come to the United States to further their education. Charleston and Eastern Illinois University are one of those destination places. The needs of International students are unique and UPT strives to step up and meet these unique challenges.

  • A welcome meal is offered to all students in conjunction with the International Student Department at the beginning of the school year
  • Shopping opportunities to International grocery markets
  • Assistance in finding needed housekeeping supplies upon arrival
  • Guidance in learning to navigate throughout the community
  • Annual All Nations Day with a service and foods from all over the world
