Welcome to Southern Arkansas University Tech’s information pages for international students. While International students must meet our freshmen and transfer guidelines, you must also follow the additional requirements we have established for International Students as required by the U.S. Student and Exchange Visitor Program.
Southern Arkansas University Tech was founded in 1968 and is part of the Southern Arkansas University System. SAU Tech is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and authorized under Federal Law to enroll non-immigrant students. International students pay out-of-state rates and any additional fees that apply making attending SAU Tech very affordable.
“SAU Tech was the beginning of my new career. I recommend to anyone from anywhere around the world to get their basic degree from SAU Tech. The staff and faculty are excellent and they will forever be in my heart.”
