The Office of International Programs (OIP) at Montana State University Bozeman (MSU) works closely with a wide range of Educational Agents throughout the world. These agents and counsellors work with local students directly; guiding them through the wide selection of US Universities and programs, assisting with the application process, applying for the appropriate visas and assisting with the preparation of studying abroad. Agents are trained by the OIP staff to the MSU academic programs, the campus culture and the application process in order to assist students to make the best choice for their future academic future.
The OIP Prospective Agent Review Committee meets monthly to review prospective agents that meet our recruiting and diversity goals for MSU. Once a contract is in place, our office provides counsellor support and training, campus updates through newsletters and direct student support via overseas counsellors and our Agent Partnership Manager. MSU only works with agents with the highest levels of integrity to ensure that student needs and expectations are met once they reach the MSU campus.
