DHS Study in the States

Late September 2011, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano announced a new website intended to offer foreign students a “one stop shop” for information about studying in the United States. At the official unveiling, Secretary Napolitano said the initiative was designed to help encourage the best and brightest international students to come to U.S. academic institutions and remain after graduation. According to a statement, the site will include “dynamic and interactive content” such as:

  • "Interactive and accessible information, allowing prospective and current students to visually navigate steps of the student visa process on their own ‘Road Map to Success.’
  • Links to social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, disseminating relevant visa requirements and information to international students, exchange visitors, and the academic community.
  • A blog with posted videos, public service announcements, relevant news, requirements, helpful tips and success stories."
  • Office of International Students and Scholars

    OISS - Office of International Students and Scholars is the center for international student involvement at MSU. The office provides new student orientation, as well as other social and cultural programming throughout the year to assist students in fulfilling their educational objectives. From their website you will find information on the international student orientation, visas, traveling, maintaining legal status, financial aid and MUCH MORE!
