Prearrival Information

Welcome to Michigan State University!

We are happy to know you have been offered admission to Michigan State University (MSU). It is challenging to begin life in a new and unfamiliar community in a culture other than your own. This site is intended to help you understand and plan for the most significant issues you will face during this period of transition. We hope you will read it carefully and use it to plan ahead.

The Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) is the primary contact office for all international students at MSU. Our staff has experience in the issues international students face and are prepared to help you with issues both big and small. We invite you to contact us at any time we can be of assistance to you. Our website provides comprehensive information that will be useful to you throughout your stay on campus. We urge you to refer to it often.

Best wishes for a safe trip to East Lansing.
