International students

There is a tradition of strong support and emphasis on global learning on the Bluffton campus. As a Christian university, Bluffton is a community dedicated to serious pursuit of the teachings of Jesus Christ, including peaceful resolution of conflict, simplicity of lifestyle and service to others.


As a result of these commitments, Bluffton has developed a strong reputation as a safe environment where each student is individually cared for as a valued member of our campus family. In addition to individual attention, Bluffton adds robust academic scholarships which allow strong academic students to earn up to $15,000 a year in merit based financial aid.

Bluffton University (in Bluffton, Ohio, USA) is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and offers more than 85 programs of study. A degree from Bluffton University is well-respected, and graduates from Bluffton are employed in a variety of successful careers. 

Almost all Bluffton students reside in on-campus housing which is spacious, clean and comfortable. Bluffton is located in a small town with a family-friendly atmosphere. Many shops, churches, restaurants and parks are within walking distance of campus. Several large cities are within two hours distance by car but most students travel more frequently to two regional small cities that are 20 minutes from campus.
