International Students

We are a global learning community that prepares students to navigate a world of change.

Approximately 25 percent of our students come from outside of the United States.


We understand the unique opportunities that come with living and learning abroad. Our international students have the support and resources necessary to access all the academic and cultural experiences that Tilton has to offer.
  • Dedicated Faculty. Tilton’s International Student Coordinator works closely with students to help them acclimate and adjust to our residential community.
  • Student Resources. In addition to a specialized orientation program, we help students with details like cell phones, bank accounts, and airport transportation.
  • Extensive Programs. After classes, students pursue their own passions, through arts, clubs, and more than two dozen sports teams — stages and studios, laboratories and workshops await!
  • English for Speakers of Other Languages. Our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL, ELL, ESL) program is delivered through Tilton’s Center for Academic Achievement .  ESOL is serves students who require additional English instruction to supplement their work in a standard English class. 

    ESOL develops skills in academic English, with an emphasis on reading and writing. The program prepares students for college or university study, in future jobs, and in personal endeavors in English speaking cultures.

  • Integrated Language Support. Designed for English language learners who need extra support for success in their academic courses. Integrated Language Support (ILS)  emphasizes  vocabulary, sentence grammar, reading, writing and speaking. Homework assignments from other classes serve as the foundation for ILS work. The development of key skills is assessed throughout the year.
