International Students and Scholars
Here at KGI we take pride in our rich cultural diversity. We believe that the future leaders of life sciences are best prepared by sharing common knowledge with people from different backgrounds, ethnicities and perspectives, and welcome international students as a part of our community. We are committed to assisting you throughout your time with us, and invite you to explore just some of the services we provide.
Activities - International Place of the Claremont Colleges (I-Place) is the hub of international student activity at the Claremont Colleges! We encourage you to take part in the activities and workshops they offer throughout the year, and perhaps even join one of the many clubs and organizations on campus. Make sure to get involved in KGI’s very own International Student Club!
Advising - Our International Student Advisor, Nusha Shishegar, is available to answer questions and advise you on procedures relating to immigration, employment, social security, and taxes, among other things.
