Other International Students

DACA Students

The University of Michigan welcomes and supports students without regard to their immigration status. We will continue to admit students in a manner consistent with our non-discrimination policy. Once students are admitted, the University of Michigan is committed to fostering an environment in which each student can flourish.

Students With Any Other Nonimmigrant Visa Status (NOT F-1)

Information on nonimmigrant visa statuses who can study while in the United States can be found here.

IMPORTANT: Applicants who are currently in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Status or with a Nonimmigrant Visa Status will need to apply using the International (Non-U.S. Citizen) First-Year or Transfer application. Select “Non-Citizen – Other or No Visa” for your citizenship status. List your citizenship and specify “Other Visa Type” or indicate your visa type for questions relating to visa status.

Please note international students, including those with DACA or nonimmigrant visa status, will be classified as a non-resident for tuition purposes. Information on how to qualify for in-state tuition can be found here.
