This program is available for international students and international scholars (faculty, staff, & researchers) at MSU.

We understand that studying and working in another country is exciting, and it also can be a time of change, adjustment, and stress.  Here at Michigan State University we want make sure your time here is a positive and growing experience.  That is why we are offering the International Student & Scholar Support Program (ISSP) to support you while living in the United States. 

Brought to you by Morneau Shepell and Michigan State University, the ISSP is free to use and your information is kept private.  You have unlimited access to articles, tools, resources, and International Student & Scholar Support Advisors that can help you succeed during your time at MSU.

The ISSP can help with:

  • adapting to new cultures
  • being successful in school and work
  • everyday issues while living in the U.S.
  • relationships with friends and family
  • stress, anxiety, sadness, loneliness
  • and lots more!

You may call or chat with an International Student & Scholar Support Advisor at any time (24 hours a day/7 days a week) to receive immediate support or to schedule an appointment in the future.  You can connect with an advisor who speaks your language and understands your culture, including the challenges you face while living in the United States.

There are three ways to access support. Check out ISSP today!
