Preparing to Arrive at MTSU
Make sure you review the information here and submit all of the important requirements to MTSU before you arrive on campus.
- Confirm My Intent to Enroll at MTSU
- Purchase My Health Insurance
As a requirement of your attendance to MTSU every semester, you must provide proof that you have obtained adequate health insurance. The minimum requirement for international students is that they have coverage of at least $30,000USD for an emergency evacuation and $30,000USD for repatriation of remains. Feel free to visit PGH Global and look into a “Trailblazer” plan, the “Compass Silver” from ISO Student Health Insurance, or “Elite” plan from International Student Insurance as you begin your search for adequate insurance.
- Orientation Schedule
Orientation is mandatory for all incoming students to attend as it covers important information regarding immigration and school policies.

Apply for On-Campus Housing
Living on campus places you at the center of the university community, ready for both academic and co-curricular activities. Many students find that MTSU residence halls or apartments are the right choice for them. However, space is limited and granted on a first come, first served basis so make sure to apply as early as possible. Learn more.
Off-Campus Housing Options
Most students at MTSU choose to live off-campus. Many apartment complexes are within walking distance of the university while others offer free shuttles to campus or are along public bus routes. Learn more.
