The university is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students. Each year, international students enrich the community with their own points of view and culture. Students are thereby immersed in a cosmopolitan environment alive with opportunities for learning.
Anderson University students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and geographic locations. It is expected that students will be accepted on their own merits, without respect to wealth, position, sex, or color.
In welcoming students of all nationalities, races, and faiths, Anderson University aspires to treat each student as an individual. All student services — orientation, counseling, housing, testing, activities, student financial assistance, employment, Tri-S, health, placement, and religious life — are closely coordinated in an attempt to deal with each individual as a whole person. A significant objective is to increase the student's self-insight and self-discovery and to assist in the intellectual, social, aspirational, and spiritual development of the student.
The university urges students to maintain high academic standards. Careful attention has been given to bringing together a faculty of academic, experiential, and personal competence. Scholastic standards are maintained with the expectation that students will discipline themselves to achieve their best work.
