Welcome to Muskingum University's International Programs Office
The information provided here is intended to help a variety of students - prospective students, accepted students, and students who are already here on campus.
The office engages students in critical thinking activities designed to empower them to make moral and ethical lifelong choices which will influence the future communities in which they will reside and the collective society as a whole.
Muskingum University is a relatively small institution of nearly 1,300 traditional undergraduate students with approximately 1,700 non-traditional undergraduate and graduate students. Muskingum has an unusually rich and diverse international community, with over 75 students representing ten foreign countries. American and international students enjoy the experience of exchanging ideas, comparing values and learning from each other.
Prospective students and accepted students
Be sure to read through the section For Incoming Students and also the International Student Handbook. Feel free to ask any questions that you have, it is quite a challenge to come to a new country to study and we want to help ease the process as much as possible. Once you arrive on campus you will quickly find a great support network within the Student Affairs Staff and in your orientation program.
Make sure you join the International Students group so you don’t miss exciting trips for shopping, sports events, or cultural activities. The airport transportation schedule is really important to look at before buying your airplane ticket to make sure you have a way to get to or from the airport.
If you are looking for information on obtaining a social security number, income taxes, getting a driver's license, or buying a car, then see Valerie in the Quad Center, room 216.
There is a lot to get involved in at Muskingum. You will quickly find that there is time to be in clubs or other activities and still maintain high academic achievement. There is a World Vision Club on campus for international students and Americans that want to help promote international awareness at Muskingum. There is a floor in Finney Hall that is devoted to housing students that enjoy learning about new languages or cultures and sharing their culture with others.
