International Profile

The New York Home for International Students

Pace University offers students a unique combination of stimulating academic programs and strong New York–based professional experiences so that they are prepared to hit the ground running in their careers when they graduate.

With more than 100 majors and accelerated bachelor’s/graduate degree programs, students at Pace study everything from biochemistry and business to computer science, psychology, and teaching. Our small class sizes—19 students on average—allow for the kind of personal attention from faculty to support student success.

Plus, we are committed to providing students with multiple opportunities to practice what they learn with internships, faculty-sponsored research, academic and professional competitions, school-sponsored projects with outside firms, community-based projects, and study abroad. The Pace student can build an impressive résumé before graduation.

A Pace education also extends beyond the walls of the classroom with a variety of cultural events available on and around both campuses, student organizations, and leadership programs—all of which give you the opportunity to grow as an individual.

Pace’s New York advantage
We offer two campus locations—in the heart of New York City and in nearby Westchester County.

Our New York City campus is your home base for living, studying, and working in the most dynamic city in the United States. The city is your campus, with cultural and professional activities, learning opportunities, and internships at places like the Federal Reserve, Microsoft, Lincoln Center, the New York Stock Exchange, and many more.

At our newly renovated Westchester campus in Pleasantville, New York (just 34 miles from Manhattan), you can enjoy two sides of New York: the quintessential college campus lifestyle and easy access to all of the professional activities and entertainment that the New York metropolitan area offers. You can intern at world-class companies in the city and closer to campus.

Career Services = career preparation
Our Career Services team offers students one of the largest internship placement programs of any university in the New York metropolitan area, so it’s no surprise that Forbes ranks Pace one of the top 20 colleges in the nation “that will make you rich.” Each year more than 5,000 Pace students participate in internships, practicums, and field work experiences. We take career preparation seriously and offer students a variety of services all the way to graduation and beyond.

International student services
Pace’s International Student and Scholars Office (ISSO) works with students to answer questions about immigration regulations, employment authorizations, health insurance, and other issues.
