Cate welcomes international students. International and domestic applicants are considered in the same pool and held to the same standards. Because we don’t offer English as a Second Language, we expect all applicants to be fluent in English. Seventeen percent of the current student body are international students hailing from 17 different countries. We consider an international student to be one whose home mailing address is outside of the United States. Currently, ten percent of our student body are F-1 Visa holders.
