Mission

The International Student and Scholar Office endeavors to:

  • Maintain compliance of Towson University and our international faculty, students and staff with federal immigration regulations
  • Retain international students by coordinating services and programs that enhance their academic and co-curricular success
  • Integrate Towson University’s international population by providing the environment and opportunities for cross-cultural dialogue and engagement

Location 

The backdrop for learning is TU’s beautiful 329-acre suburban campus, located eight miles north of Baltimore and less than an hour’s drive from Washington, D.C. Throughout the  region, Towson University’s strong partnerships with public and private organizations provide unique opportunities for research, internships and jobs. The Towson Learning Network extends beyond its main campus to  off-campus locations throughout the state. Transfer students can complete their degrees at TU in Northeastern Maryland.

Towson is a college town with tree-lined residential streets, restaurants, bookstores, a major branch of the county library, movie theaters and shopping. Towson University is just one of the reasons that USA Today ranks Baltimore among America’s 10 best major cities for college students.
