Welcome to the home of the Center for International Programs (CIP), the hub of all international activity at West Chester University. This includes international events and programming and all of the areas listed below. Please visit our calendar page linked on the right to learn about upcoming international events on campus.
WCU is home to INTERLINK, an English as Second Language Program designed for students needing additional English language skills before enrolling in WCU as a degree seeking student.
West Chester University monitors and supports travel warnings and alerts from the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and communicates critical updates with individuals who are registered via the Center for International Programs office. Currently the CDC urges all U.S. residents to avoid nonessential travel to Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone due to the outbreak of Ebola in those countries. (More information on Ebola and travel).
Travel by students, faculty and staff who plan personal, non-University sponsored trips to Ebola-affected countries is discouraged. Current enhanced screening at airports may result in a 21 day isolation period and monitoring by the local Health Department. Read the CDC fact sheet for airport screening .
A reminder: All university-approved and sanctioned international travel (outside of the contiguous United States. This includes Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico) by West Chester University employees and students must be coordinated via the Center for International Programs: http://www.wcupa.edu/international/exportControls.aspx.
