Be sure to make your flight reservations well in advance of orientation and reconfirm your reservations prior to arriving at your home airport. Also, please schedule your flight taking in to account the dates of immigration allowing you to enter the U.S. up to, but not more than, 30 days prior to your start date.
The closest airport to Mankato is St. Paul/ Minneapolis international airport (MSP).
Once you are at MSP, you will need to take a shuttle from MSP to Mankato. Mankato is about 90 minutes away from MSP. This shuttle is not available at all times. Please check with the shuttle schedule before reserving your flight. Visit the Land to Air Express website for information on the shuttle. We recommend that you plan your air travel so that you arrive in St.Paul/Minneapolis between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (Central Standard time). This will allow you to come to Mankato between 9:00 a.m. and 7 p.m, and will be able to get the shuttle
Please note, all international students need to report to MSU and check in at the Kearney International Center the day before the orientation at 3pm. Please check the orientation schedule for more information.
