Get settled in your American home

When you arrive in the United States, members of our international student services team will prove to be gracious hosts, helping you arrange housing and transportation, connect with fellow students, learn how to navigate your new surroundings and make the most of your time in our country.

When you begin classes, you will find your fellow students to be a diverse and stimulating group. Together with our faculty and staff members, you will be a part of a network that will enhance your personal and professional growth. Class sizes are small, usually less than 15 students. Your American classmates will represent a broad range of industries, and your international classmates may come from several continents.

If you would like more information about our services, please call 612-455-3000 and ask for Alex Thomas or Meera Wiest in International Admissions, or email
