Pace University offers international students a unique combination of strong academics, real-world experiences, and mentorships that will guide you toward becoming successful both professionally and personally. Pace is home to 2,210 international students who choose Pace to gain exceptional professional preparation in New York, receive a top-notch American education, and immerse themselves in US culture.

With more than 100 majors and accelerated bachelor’s/graduate degree programs, Pace offers everything from Biochemistry and Business to Computer Science, Psychology, and Teaching. Our small class sizes—20 students on average—allow personal attention from faculty who support student success. 

We are committed to providing you with multiple opportunities to practice what you learn with internships, faculty-sponsored research, academic and professional competitions, school-sponsored projects with outside firms, and community-based projects. At Pace, you can build an impressive résumé before you graduate. 

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  the New York metropolitan area offers. You can intern at world-class companies in the city and those located closer to campus.

Career Services = career preparation
Our Career Services team offers you one of the largest internship placement programs of any university in the New York metropolitan area. Each year Pace students complete more than 5,000 internships, co-ops, practicums, and field work experiences. We take career preparation seriously, which is why 84% of international students received internships during the last academic year and 84% of Pace’s international graduates were employed full time within one year of graduation. 

International student services
Pace’s International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) helps students navigate studying in the US and answers questions about immigration regulations, employment authorizations, health insurance, financial aid, and other issues.

Get involved!
A Pace education extends beyond the walls of the classroom with a variety of cultural events available on and around both campuses, and more than 100 clubs and organizations for you to get involved in—all of which give you the opportunity to grow as an individual.

Robust financial aid and scholarships
