Frostburg State University is one of the first Founding Members of MSM Higher Ed Pathways.

One of the world’s reputable higher education institutions, Frostburg State University (FSU) has partnered with education management company MSM Higher Ed in its unique pathway program for international education

Called MSM Higher Ed Pathways, this program prepares students for entry or advanced standing at multiple universities in study destinations for international education.

Frostburg State University, a member of the University System of Maryland, joins the roster of Founding Member institutions from destination countries such as Canada, USA, New Zealand, Australia and the UK. 

Founding Members of this pathway initiative become part of a global consortium that articulates existing Pathway curriculum and provide advice on the design of future study abroad pathways for international students. 

“Frostburg State University is looking forward to welcoming additional well-qualified international students from diverse regions of the world through this new partnership with MSM Higher Ed,” said Frostburg State University President Ronald Nowaczyk. “We are excited about collaborating with other Founding Members of the Higher Ed Pathways global consortia.”

The new Pathway curriculum designed by Founding Members will be carried out at MSM Higher Ed delivery centres in over 50 cities across the globe in the coming three years. 

As a Founding Member, FSU has the opportunity to participate in rigorous quality assurance reviews, to welcome a steady stream of qualified international students from diverse countries and backgrounds, and to become part of Foundation studies and pathways recruitment events. In addition, it is able to boost its global presence and branding as an MSM Higher Ed partner institution. 

“One university, a world of experiences”

Founded in 1898, Frostburg State University is the only four-year institution of USM west of the Baltimore-Washington corridor in the United States. It is located on the Appalachian highlands of Western Maryland. FSU’s campus covers 260 acres in the city of its namesake, Frostburg.

It focuses on experiential learning and individual attention, preparing future leaders to meet the challenges of a complex and changing global society. The institution remains closely connected to its community with a focus on regional and statewide economic and workforce development.
