In an emergency, the student must contact the onsite staff and local authorities first. There is not much that anyone in the U.S. can do if the student needs immediate assistance. Double check the host country’s equivalent to 911.

Non-emergency calls may be made to the International Programs office at 989.837.4327 during normal business hours (8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. EST). For emergencies that occur after hours, the student should contact Northwood’s Campus Security at 989.837.4373. This number is active 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The security personnel will then inform the appropriate personnel. This number should only be used in case of emergency.
