Student support

Support every step of the way

When you join INTO Illinois State you become a part of a supportive community made up of our staff and other international students. From the minute you land in Bloomington-Normal, our student services team will take care of you from the airport to your new home. It is easy to feel lost in a new school, let alone a new country, but we are here to make sure you can always find your way throughout your studies. A member of our student services team will always be available to you 24 hours a day. Whether you have a housing, academic or  personal issue, don’t be afraid to reach out. We are here for you. 

What we offer you

INTO Illinois State is committed to helping you achieve your personal and professional goals by providing the tools you need to succeed. Our center will serve as a learning community where you can have access to academic resources such as Learning Resource Center, test preparation classes, tutor support and conversation partners. 

Support outside the classroom

To be successful at an American university, you need to participate in activities outside of the classroom. With more than 400 student organizations, you're sure to find one that catches your personal and professional interests. Not sure how to join an organization? Don't worry our student services team can help you find your best match. We are committed to helping you integrate in to the US as easily and quickly as possible.
