International Students

New Students

International students that are not U.S. citizens, or Permanent Residents of the U.S., have limited financial aid resources available to them in terms of grants and scholarships. As part of their application for a student visa, international students must document that they have sufficient financial resources to meet their educational costs in the U.S. Please visit the University of Michigan’s Office of Financial Aid website for additional information.
