International Student Support


Merrimack values each of our international students and the unique qualities that they bring to the college. Our community is committed to scholarship and service to others, and provides students with a variety of opportunities to develop intellectually, spiritually, socially and ethically. 

Before you ever set foot on campus, you may hear about Merrimack’s close-knit, friendly community. We believe that cultivating connections, strengthening bonds and forging new relationships are vital to personal growth and intellectual development.

International Student Support Programs

International Student Support helps you acclimate to life at Merrimack. We’ll help you maintain your lawful visa status, understand your rights in the United States and access the benefits permitted by your student visa. 

In addition, we are here to support your overall experience at the college. International Student Support, in cooperation with the academic counselor for international students, offers customized programs to assist your academic, professional, social, personal and cultural integration into the college and the United States.

Advising: Academic Counselor for International Students

The counselor’s role is to work with international students on academic questions, advocacy, referral, and intersession to succeed academically. Each student is assigned a primary advisor in their major.
