International Students


International students at Cairn are a part of a community of learners from around the world.  In your academic studies, your involvement in campus life, and your engagement with local and global communities, you will develop a worldview that is centered on Christ and His word and reaches out to impact the lives of those around you – wherever you are.

This section of the intranet contains information on maintaining your F-1 visa status, seeking employment as an F-1 student, getting a social security number, and travel as an F-1 student.
