American Semester Program


Experience a true, All-American college experience at a top-100 research institution - Michigan State University with the American Semester Program. 






The American Semester Program (ASP) is a fee-paying, study abroad program offered at Michigan State University (MSU). ASP offers programs for international undergraduate, graduate and gap students to study abroad at MSU, a top-tier academic and research institution, based in East Lansing, Michigan.

All ASP students are fully integrated into university life, and guaranteed on-campus housing with access to MSU dining halls. Students can also participate in student organizations, join sports teams, and enjoy the quintessential college town of East Lansing.

ASP students will take courses alongside MSU degree-seeking students. Students normally transfer credit back to their home institution for the courses they complete. Regardless of duration, participating on an ASP program provides students with many resources and opportunities including on-site orientation, social and cultural excursions, and ASP sponsored programming and events.

Additionally, students receive one-on-one health, safety and academic support, before, during and after the program.
