Moment's of student's t distribution

I'm trying to get a general formula for the moments of a nonstandardized t distribution. When I ask for the moments in general 
Moment[StudentTDistribution[\[Mu], \[Sigma], \[Nu]], k]
 Mathematica merely echoes the input. But when I plug in any integer for k, Mathematica gives me a simple answer quickly. How can I get Mathematica to tell me the general formula?
