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-disclination policy. Once students are admitted, the University of Michigan is committed to fostering an environment in which each student can flourish.

– University of Michigan President, Mark S. Schlissel

DACA Students

Select "Non Citizen – Other or No Visa" for your citizenship status. List your citizenship and specify "Other Visa Type" for questions relating to visa status.
