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.
