Class Schedule


VETP is for MSU International Students and Scholars and their adult family members. 

Classes are conversation and discussion.  They are NOT formal English instruction.

Classes are "drop-in".  You do not need to register. Just come to a class when it is convenient for you!  Classes are held in Room 307 International Center

You may attend as many classes as you'd like, but please contact the tutor before attending to let them know you are coming.

Email VETP at vetp(at) if you have questions.
