Student Support

International Relations Online students in the International Relations and International Service programs are full members of both the American University and School of International Service communities. We make it our mission to offer the highest-quality support throughout the entire student experience, from initial contact all the way through graduation and beyond:

During the admissions process, you will have a dedicated admissions counselor who will answer any questions you have about the program, the application, and the admissions process.

Upon your admission to the program, you will be assigned a dedicated advisor who is available to meet with you one-on-one throughout your program and who will act as your go-to resource for guidance and support.

Once you enroll, you will be able to work with our Student Services team, who will assist you with academic support, course planning/advising, and community engagement, no matter your level of technological expertise.

As an International Relations Online student, you will have access to American University assets including, career services, library resources, student benefits, and access to university events and speakers.

When you graduate, you will be invited to participate in the on-campus graduation ceremony where you will join students from both the online and on-campus programs as you celebrate your accomplishments.

After graduation, you will join the American University and School of International Service global alumni networks, which connect you for life to other graduates who are serving communities around the world.
