Warm Minnesota Greetings from the International Students Services Office!
It may be cold during certain seasons here in Minnesota, but you will always be greeted by open arms and warm smiles when you stop by the International Student Services' Office. Our office is the primary contact for our international students from the time you apply until the time you graduate. We look forward to assisting you while you attend Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU)! Although we understand that the United States will never be considered "home" to you, we will do our best to make Southwest your "home-away-from-home."
As you attend SMSU we will do what we can to help you adjust to the culture and encourage you as you strive to accomplish your academic and career goals. Furthermore, we will support you as you encounter the United States' immigrations laws and regulations that are, more often than not, complicated and unclear.
Not only is our office is here to assist you whenever we can, we also host many university events throughout the year. Be sure to get involved with our International Student Organization! It is a great place to make friends and enjoy lively conversation.
