Multiple features of social support provided by lecturers, parents, friends, and significant others to migrant students (N = 82) in an entrepreneurship university were assessed. The present study attemped to answer three questions: (1) whether percieved social support significantly associated with migrant students’ resiliency; (2) what is the source of social support that percieved as the strongest predictor to resiliency; and (3) what is the type of social support that needed to form migrant students’ resiliency. The respondents were asked to fill Connor-Davidson Resiliency Scale (CD-RS) by Connor and Davidson (2003), and Percieved Social Support Multidimensional Scale (PSS-MS) by Canty-Michell and Zimet (2000). The result revealed that percieved social support was positively associated with resiliency (p<0.05; t=4.609). Significant others were seen as the primary source of social support in migrant student (p=0.003). Emotional social support were found as the type of social support that needed by migrant student to form resiliency (β=0.389). The implication for service provision and entrepreneurship education in university level are discussed.
