International Student & Scholar Support Program

Studying in another country is an exciting life experience. It can also be a time of change, adjustment, and stress.

MSU has made available International Student Support Program (ISSP) services from Morneau Shepell for International students and scholars at MSU and for MSU students in Education Abroad programs.  ISSP is free to use, and your information is kept private. In addition to one-on-one support, you have access to articles, tools, and resources that can help you succeed.

The International Student Support Advisors can help anytime with:

  • adapting to new cultures
  • being successful at school
  • relationships with friends and family
  • practical issues while studying abroad
  • stress, sadness, loneliness and much more

What makes ISSP special is that you can connect with an Advisor who:

  • speaks your language
  • understands your culture
  • keeps all information confidential, and
  • is available 24/7 at no cost to MSU students!

ISSP support can be accessed in any of the following ways:

  • by mobile and web chat
  • over the phone
  • through video

Contacting an Advisor is easy. 

You can choose between scheduling an appointment for a date and time that works for you or chat with an Advisor immediately. ISSP is here to help.
