Returning Students

We are delighted you wish to return to Minnesota State University, Mankato to study. You are considered a returning student if you've interrupted your program of study by either: 

A) departing the United States for at least one term, OR 

B) transferring-out to another SEVIS approved college/university and wish to return to MSU.  

You have already been admitted to MSU; therefore, please complete the Return to Study at MSU form and provide the required materials listed in the form. This form is to confirm your ability to return for your program of study.  

Students Returning from Academic Suspension

Students returning after Academic Suspension will not be issued a new Initial Attendance I-20 for the summer study. Full-time study is required during your first time and the intensive short-term nature of summer classes are difficult for any student, especially those with previous academic difficulties. Additionally, there is little academic support available over the summer to assist a student coming off suspension. We strive to assist you in finding academic success, and returning for the fall or spring will maximize that opportunity.
