The Provost’s Academic Advising Council (AAC) 2012-2013 has pooled information from across campus to enhance consistency and quality within Missouri State University’s advising system to help advisors with advising international students. Our university has approximately 1,400 international students from 80+ countries. Missouri State University academic advisors will be working with more and more international students, and clear, consistent information about this population will help advisors better serve these students. Not all questions that advisors may come across will be addressed here, since each student has individual needs and expectations; however, there are several offices across campus that academic advisors can refer to for help. The office of International Services and the Academic Advising and Transfer Center are two important resources advisors can consult.
