International students are those who are not residents of the United States or its territories.
In order to apply admissions, they must have a valid F-1 non-immigrant visa status. The International Student Office will assist the student in the F-1 visa application process. Learn more about the international student program by calling (313) 883-8792 to speak with a specialist or use the online contact form.
In addition to the regular admissions requirements, the following items are required as part of your application:
Once a student has been admitted, an acceptance letter and I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant F-1 Student Status) will be issued. The student is responsible for paying the SEVIS I-901 visa fee and applying for the visa through the United States Embassy or Consulate in the home country.
All international students on F-1 status must be enrolled on a full-time basis. Full-time is defined as twelve (12) credits or more per semester for undergraduate students and nine (9) credits per semester for graduate students.
