  • ELAB (English Language Academic Bridge) Program
    • Designed for students who wish to become Bachelor degree students but need additional English instruction.


International students will receive a visa which allows them to arrive in the U.S. by mid-August, about one week before classes begin. They are greeted at the airport by a Coe staff member. They then go to their dorms to rest and begin an exciting week of new student orientation.

International Club

The International Club is extremely active on Coe's campus, and all international and domestic students are welcome. Typical events during the year include the Chicago Trip, a Canoeing Trip, Coe's Cultural Show and the International Banquet.
