Welcome to International Student Services

Message from ISS
International Student Services (ISS) is proud to work with incoming international students at our Mesa campus, and to help connect current Benedictine students pursuing education abroad as well as some of the challenges students may face in pursuing these unique experiences. 

Education Abroad:
BenU Mesa students interested in studying abroad can pursue a variety of programs.  From semester and year-long programs to short-term faculty led and service immersion experiences. We offer opportunities that meet your educational, personal, and financial needs.  We encourage you to contact our office to set up an appointment by e-mailing mesaiss@ben.edu or calling 602-888-5500.

International Students in Mesa
