Welcome to Montgomery College Center for International and Multicultural Students (CIMS)

CIMS provides counseling and support services to international students, speakers of English as a second language, and recent student immigrants who enroll at Montgomery College for their first semester. Our purpose is to encourage and support International students as they gain academic and language skills.

CIMS also provides assistance with college applications, counseling and academic advising, American English Language Program placement information, and student visa/I-20 information and referrals. In addition, the Center sponsors orientation programs, workshops, English conversation groups, and international club programs.
