This content analysis explored services provided to international students and how resources help adjust to new oversea life on and off campus. Official websites of six American universities with top Career and Technical Education programs were examined. Two research questions directed the study: What resources are available on university websites for international students? How do these resources aim to help international students? There are three major findings. First, several services were widely offered by universities to international students, covering aspects of immigration, orientation, language training, academic assistant and cross-cultural programs. Second, each university usually has a specific office taking responsibility of serving international students. Third, through the lens of Astin’s theory of student involvement (1999), findings indicated that services played an important role in facilitating international students’ adjustment and professional work.
