In your final semester in Brazil, KSU advisors will begin working with you, we will offer you the opportunity to connect with current KSU students as a peer-mentor, and our ISSS office will email you instructions about how to obtain a student visa, traveling to the U.S., housing, immunization requirements, and more.
