International Applicants

International applicants are encouraged to apply to the EMHA Program. However, please note that visa sponsorship is not available for the in-person intensives held in Ithaca. Those who do not have a visa that permits joining in the in-person intensive visits in Ithaca will be able instead to participate in the intensive sessions synchronously online to ensure degree progress. International students may still participate in in-person commencement activities if they already hold valid visa status in the United States or are able to obtain a visitor visa.

Individuals who would require immigration status and sponsorship to enter the US are not eligible for this hybrid degree.  Please note that no Student Status Visas or Student immigration documentation can be issued at this time.
