MSUM welcomes international students to apply to our graduate programs by completing the online Graduate application. In addition to the online application, you must complete the program specific requirements. International graduate students must complete a few additional requirements found below.
Due to the nature of certain programs (online delivery or credit length), we cannot admit international students to certain programs. The programs that are available for international applicants are listed below. Please check each program for additional specific admission and application requirements.
All graduate international students must submit the following information to be considered for admission. Make sure you also provide your program specific application information and requirements.
Please note: Submissions of fraudulent documents will cause severe penalties resulting in an investigation from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation. Your SEVIS (Immigration Record) will be terminated immediately.
All international graduate students must purchase the University health insurance. No exceptions will be made.
All international students receive an automatic scholarship granting them in-state tuition rates upon admission to Minnesota State University Moorhead. If you are a new international student to MSUM, you do not have to apply for the scholarship. Once you are admitted, the scholarship will be applied to your account automatically.
Graduate Students must follow the following scholarship criteria:
In-State Scholarship Guidelines
During the student's first semester, all international students will automatically receive the in-state tuition scholarship. If the student wishes to receive the in-state scholarship beyond the first semester, students must maintain above criteria.
