International Students

We value the global perspective international students bring to our community.

At Saint Francis University, we strive to support a community of dedicated, compassionate individuals in-keeping with our strong commitment to Franciscan values. This effort transcends national borders, which is why we are proud to offer our online degree programs to students from all over the globe. As an online student, you will experience the same level of individual attention and community interaction as our on-campus students, but from the comfort of your own home.

Pursuing advanced careers in healthcare is a noble goal, and one that can help you make a positive impact on the global community. We are immensely proud of the program’s graduates and their ongoing service in hospitals, clinics, and mission projects in countries around the globe. We hope you will decide to join us and bring your unique perspective to the online learning experience at Saint Francis University.

Those applying to the online Master of Health Science (MHS) program from outside the U.S. must provide an independent evaluation of their previous coursework as part of the admissions process. International students can obtain this report through World Education Services (WES) or any other NACES-approved organization. The assessment allows us to determine the ways in which academic work completed in other countries relates to the admissions requirements and curriculum of the MHS Program.

International students should note that since the program is delivered online and does not have a residency requirement, SFU cannot issue a student visa.

I did not know what to expect from a 100% online program, but with expert faculty and staff that are devoted to supporting students, my learning experience has exceeded my expectations. Faculty members are readily accessible and actively participate in the learning process, promoting critical thinking. Through the program, I have developed a better understanding of what it takes to be a leader in healthcare and the skills required to excel in such positions.
