Center for International Programs and Services (CIPS)
The Center for International Programs and Services (CIPS) at Prescott houses International Admissions and International Student Services in Building 51. CIPS is the central point of contact for issues concerning international students at Embry-Riddle, including international student support for immigration and adjustment issues, cultural programming, and English Language learning through our Embry-Riddle Language Institute (ERLI). For information regarding study abroad and exchange programs please visit the study abroad office located in Building 17. An international student orientation is held each semester to familiarize new students with University and immigration policies as well as the US education system. CIPS staff advises students on admission to the University and immigration regulations, in addition to financial and personal matters.
CIPS also assists international students with processing forms and documentation of status required by foreign governments, sponsors, the U.S. government, and the University. CIPS staff members continually strive to provide opportunities for all students to become involved on campus and in community programs that promote cross-cultural awareness with University faculty, staff, and students, as well as the local community. Some activities include the International Festival – a cultural and social celebration every year, International Education Week, programs with the local community, speaking engagements with local service organizations and schools, and trips to area attractions such as national parks and cultural festivals held in the area.
