At Centre, we welcome students from all countries and cultures, seeking to enrich our college community in the process. If you are from a country outside the United States and want to study at Centre, we encourage you to apply.

Before the official first-year orientation, the College invites international students to a special orientation that introduces them to Danville and the United States. The International Student Advisor is officially responsible for much of the on-campus support available to international students such as social security card and employment documents. However, other offices also provide the same caring support available to all Centre students.

There is also a student-run organization for international students, International Student Association (ISA), to help them integrate into the Centre community. In addition, there are various other organizations such as the Diversity Student Union (DSU), Muslim Student Association (MSA), and CentreFaith that organize social and cultural events to promote togetherness and encourage diversity. Other cultural clubs that promote and celebrate diversity include Japanese Club, Chinese Club, the Hispanic Society, the French Society, and Sister-to-Sister.
