Resources for International Students

For international students at Candler, we know that your first days—even months—can be both exciting and challenging. But don’t worry—you’ll find our campus, faculty and students to be warm and welcoming. We want you to feel at home at Candler as quickly as possible!

We have a variety of resources to support you:

  • Emory’s International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) offers support, services, and activities for all of Emory's international students.
  • The International Student Orientation at Candler is required for new international students prior to Candler's all-student orientation. The event offers international students a chance to get acquainted with one another and with the Candler community, before the full orientation and start of classes.
  • English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) assessment and courses provide language support for students for whom English is not the primary language. ESOL writing tutors are available for individual assistance for course papers and projects.
  • Writing workshops help improve writing and academic skills.
  • Volunteer Conversation Partners help students develop skills in spoken English.
  • Candler and Emory also support a number of international student organizations, including the Candler International Student Association (CISA), the Emory Korean Graduate School Association (EKGSA), the Candler African Theological Student Association (CATSA), and the Candler Latin American Community (CLAC).
