Here at the Coast Guard Academy, the presence of international students on campus means a greater range of options, perspectives and knowledge to add to the diversity of thought on campus, and interaction with these students is an important part of the cadet experience.
The Coast Guard Academy is uniquely suited to prepare international maritime leaders to address the most complex global challenges of our time — those that require transnational solutions and long-term cooperation between nations, such as polar climate change, protection of ocean resources, terrorism, transnational crime and disaster response and recovery.
Currently, there are 28 international cadets enrolled at the Coast Guard Academy.
There are seven cadets in the Class of 2018, four in the Class of 2019, seven in the Class of 2020, and 10 in the Class of 2021.
International cadets in the Class of 2018 come from Mexico, Honduras, Gabon, Panama, Thailand and the Bahamas.
