Incoming International Students
Congratulations on your acceptance to Muskingum University!
There is a lot to think about before your arrival in New Concord. Our goal is to help you make your move to the United States a little bit easier.
It is VERY important that you attend Orientation. This program will make life at Muskingum University much smoother. 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. Valerie is also able to meet virtually with students before their arrival to help answer questions and complete some of the necessary steps.
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 the Director of International Programs, Dr. Valerie Smith .
In addition to the links on the side, 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.
