For the 2018-19 school year, Unity has welcomed 20 international students to the student community. Over the last five years, Unity has hosted students from South Korea, China, Spain, Germany, Thailand, and Denmark. We celebrate and embrace students as they embark on their educational and spiritual journey here at Unity Christian.
All International Student inquires shall be processed through Unity’s International Student Coordinator (ISC) Julie Essebaggers. She can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at Unity 616.669.1820

*The only exception to this agency requirement is if the student has an immediate family member living in the Eastern Ottawa County area OR the student is in their 2nd or 3rd year at Unity. The ISC will only work with either the international agent, student representative, or the immediate family member in Michigan and will not work directly with the student or his/her family in determining acceptance.
