Student Handbook 2021-2022


International Student Services

International Student Services provides support programs and services to assist international students in achieving their goals. All F-1 international students must meet with their international student enrollment advisor/DSO prior to their first semester and afterward as needed. International students should meet with their assigned academic advisor if they experience academic difficulties, have questions about their academic program, or seek tutoring assistance.

The academic Program Plan can be accessed through the Walsh Student Portal upon admission. The Program Plan outlines the course of study at Mervyn B. Walsh International University (Walsh) based on the Catalog in effect at admission. Students may change their degree program, major, or update their program to the newest Catalog year, with approval of the international student enrollment advisor/DSO. They must also consult with their international student enrollment advisor/DSO to ensure appropriate changes are made to their I-20.

Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor each semester. Their academic advisor may confirm specific courses remaining for program completion and review cumulative and major grade point average to ensure students are meeting expected requirements.
