Welcome from the International Center
Welcome to Azusa Pacific University! On your first day at APU, you will meet many different people with many different backgrounds and goals. APU students come from more than 50 countries from around the world. Some want to be musicians, scientists, nurses, teachers, doctors, or entrepreneurs. A few are hesitant, others eager; some are quiet, and some are enthusiastic.
But throughout your journey as an APU student, you all have something in common—the call to be excellent. This will take shape in the classroom and in the community, while you are acquiring knowledge and serving those in need. Azusa Pacific University has been developing disciples and scholars since 1899. Be a part of a legacy: Christ, Scholarship, Community, and Service—making a world of difference.
APU provides an incredible opportunity for not only academic learning, but also for growth as a person. Here, you are able to enjoy the benefits of an assortment of learning resources and relationships with professors and other faculty and staff that many other large universities cannot offer. We understand that choosing a university is a difficult decision, but rest assured that in choosing Azusa Pacific University you will obtain a degree from one of the finest private universities in Southern California.
Here in the International Center, we believe that “your potential is our priority.” We are here to serve and support you during your studies with us, and beyond! We want you to grow into the person that God has created you to be.
Now that you have taken a glimpse, come in and get a complete view of what APU has to offer you as an international student. We look forward to welcoming you to Azusa Pacific University.
