International Admissions

Powering an Inclusive Environment

William Paterson is one of the most diverse universities in New Jersey, and we’re proud to be a Hispanic- and minority-serving institution. We believe that an impactful education must reflect the world, and students must learn alongside a diverse population for an expanded worldview.

If you're an international student, it may take time for you to feel comfortable on a new campus in a foreign country. We make it a priority to help you navigate the adventure you’re on, and the Student Success Team is just one example of how we support our international Pioneers. All first-year students are paired with a group of specialized experts that make sure they thrive. So whether you have questions about financial aid, course selection, career planning, or more, our experts are eager to help.

Qualified international students can pay close to our affordable in-state rate for tuition and fees. With an increasing number of international students representing 64 countries, and some of the nation's highest rates of cultural and ethnic diversity, at William Paterson you will study in a vibrant community, sharing your university experience with students and professors from every background and perspective. For main campus International Students the Pioneer Award can provide an 80% discount on the difference between in- and out-of-state tuition.
