New Student Information
Information for NEW international students and scholars:
The following are links to web sites that will provide you with information on coming to study in the U.S., obtaining a visa and entry to the U.S. The information is not specific to international students and scholars coming to the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) but we think that it is useful information.
When you link to these web sites be sure to confirm that the information you are reading is current. The Office for International Support at MUSC does not control the content of these sites.
