International Orientation

Online Orientation for International Students

How will new international students complete New Student Orientation? International students should plan to complete orientation in two parts.

  • First, complete online orientation using the "Spring Orientation" tab to the left under the RELATED LINKS heading if you are a new student starting at MSU in the Spring 2020 semester. The online modules will cover basic academic, financial and involvement information for new students. If you are a new student starting at MSU in the Fall 2020 semester the online orientation will open in April 2020. 
  • Second, attend the International Orientation on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (if you are a new student for Spring 2020). Additional details will be provided by the Global Education Office.

*Please note that if you have a Texas Success Initiative (TSI) status of "not taken" or "partially exempt" you will not be allowed to register for classes until we have TSI scores or proof of a full TSI exemption. Therefore, students who are not exempt and have not attended another public Texas college, must schedule to take the TSI assessment in the required subject areas prior to registration.
