International Excursions

Many international students do not have a car and there is a lot to see beyond Muskingum's campus! In order to help you experience more of life in the United States, the International Student Services Office provides programs off campus. Make sure you pay attention to the sign-up deadlines for each trip. Some trips may require a deposit. See Britt in the TOC 215 for more information.

Bureau of Motor Vehicle Trips

Students that wish to apply for a driving learner's permit may stop by the International Student Services Office (TOC 216) and pick up a study book. When the student is ready to take the test, and wishes to receive transportation to the testing location, he/she should schedule a time through OrgSync . Each student will be allowed one trip to the testing location. If the student does not pass the test, they must find another way to retake the test so make sure you study! No transportation or vehicles will be provided for the driver's license test.

Please make sure you are signing up for trips via orgsync! If you need help registering for orgsync, please see Valerie Smith in room TOC 216.
