Immigration Advising

Page address:

MSU's 1000+ international students come from over 90 different countries. Our students enjoy comprehensive educational opportunities and exciting cultural and athletic events on a campus that is currently adding to and renovating its extensive facilities. MSU prepares students for life in a changing and competitive world.

More than anything else, students define the international experience. If you want to know why international students choose to come to Minnesota State University, Mankato, ask a student. International Student & Scholar Services has been around since 1972, and we're good at what we do: helping students for a lifetime of success and fulfillment in their professions, their communities, and their personal lives.

Depending on your visa (F-1 or J-1), specific resources are available (see sidebar) - some issues involve both student visa types. Immigration related questions may be discussed with an advisor during walk-in hours (a 5-10 minute session for quick questions) or by calling 507-389-1281 to schedule a 30-minute appointment for lengthier immigration questions.
