Program Search

New for fall 2021, the Office for Education Abroad is implementing a new software platform, Via TRM, that will be used to search and apply for MSU education abroad programs. A profile will need to be created in order to access the system.

Create Your Profile

In order to view education abroad program information, you will need to sign-in to MSU’s Via TRM portal and begin a profile by answering a few simple questions.

After answering these questions, you can search directly for a specific program, or go through the Program Matching function - a fun and personalized quiz that will result in a list of programs that match your preferences. You can edit your preferences at any time to get new results or filter the list of programs by destination, field of study, duration, general keywords, and more!

Button to log-in to Via TRM


It’s recommended to use Google Chrome as Via TRM is not compatible with other browsers.

Michigan State University students must use their MSU NetID and password to access Via TRM (orange “Sign In” box). Students from other colleges and universities will sign-in through the link below the orange box.

Once your profile is set-up in the system, you will have access to:

  • Program brochures
  • Application materials
  • Messaging center
  • Events and information meetings

NOTE: Program information is still being entered into Via TRM, especially summer programs, so please check the program search often!

If you would like to meet with a Peer Adviser to discuss your options or walk through the Via TRM system, visit the Education Abroad Advising Center (108 International Center) for options. We can help you find a program that meets your needs and interests!

All programs listed in Via TRM are official MSU-sponsored programs or affiliated partner programs authorized by Michigan State University in which any student may apply as long as they meet eligibility requirements. Students may also complete independent studies or internships abroad when the appropriate arrangements have been made with an MSU College sponsor.  Students are not permitted to participate in programs not listed in Via TRM (non-MSU programs) at this time.

NOTE: A visitor link is also available to see the entire list of available programs without the need to log-in. However, you will not be able to favorite/save programs or apply to programs until you’ve created a profile.
