International Admissions

If you’re an international student seeking your next educational adventure, Frostburg State University is a great choice. Frostburg offers over 100 programs of study, so you’ll be sure to find classes that match your interests and compliment your home university studies.

Why FSU?

Frostburg is a welcoming and picturesque example of small-town America, but we’re also conveniently close to major cities like Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. You’ll find plenty to do on campus, from cultural festivals with our many international groups to late-night parties and social events that bring out the whole student body. Our students are famous for being friendly, and are eager to meet you and learn about your culture.

Your Home Away from Home

International students on F1 or J1 student visas visiting Frostburg will find a second home in the Center for International Education. It’s our job to make sure you have all the immigration documents and support you need for a smooth transition to U.S. college life and the best educational experience – and have some fun too! We are here to answer any questions you may have about your immigration documents, visa, classes and campus life.

“Choose a small town (like Frostburg) because you can make a lot of friends easily and quickly. You can know the real culture. When I went to New York and Chicago, it was not so different from Argentina, but here it’s so different.”

“The first year I had difficulty following my professors but I challenged myself to make some changes. I finally overcame all the difficulties and achieved an A in all of my classes and achieved a 4.0. I made me very happy.”
