There’s no doubt about it: If international students have the time and ability to visit campuses in the U.S., do it! But that certainly isn’t always a realistic option. So, for those students just too far away to visit prospective colleges—here are five essential steps to take to make sure you pick the right colleges for you:
- Take a virtual tour.
- Look into the international student services office.
- Chat with a college student ambassador.
- Chat with former students from your high school.
- DON’T rely on rankings.
