Information & Services for Incoming International
Congratulations on your acceptance to Muskingum University! There
is a lot to think about before your arrival in New Concord. This
page contains many helpful links for you to make your move to
the United States a little bit easier.
In addition to the links on the right, be sure to go through
the International Student Handbook.
This handbook was designed
for new international students coming to Muskingum University. The
handbook contains information specific to Muskingum as well as
information about what it is like going to a college or university
in the United States.
It is VERY important that you attend Orientation. This program will make life at Muskingum
University much easier. You will meet all the other new international
students and have a variety of informational sessions and fun
activities. See the Orientation page for complete details.
The main form of communication prior to arrival is email.
The International Student Services Office usually has the email
addresses of the incoming students, but contact Valerie Smith if you are not receiving emails from the
office and it is less than a month before your arrival.
Ask questions! We love hearing from students before they come
and answering their questions. Even if the question seems silly
to you, ask us anyway! Many times the questions covers something
important and we will send out the answer to all the new students.
You can direct your question to either of the two people below,
but please only contact one of us with your question so that we
can be sure that it gets answered quickly.
