International Admission

Welcome to the 15th Largest Classroom in America.

Butler University welcomes international students each year to campus. Our current student body represents 39 countries–and this number is quickly growing.

Why choose Butler? There are plenty of reasons, from our small class sizes to our 65+ academic majors to our focus on preparing our students for successful and meaningful lives after graduation.  

But our location in Indianapolis, Indiana is what really sets the Butler experience apart from other insitutions. Indianapolis is the 15th-largest city in the United States, and our campus is located just 5 miles from downtown. This means arts festivals, NBA and NFL games, outdoor concerts, and plenty of exploring could all be part of your college experience. And recently ranked one of the best cities for young professionals by Forbes in 2016, Indy is the perfect backdrop for hands-on learning.
