International students not only thrive at U-M, they bring a world of perspectives to a world-class university. Michigan offers you the unmatched combination of excellence and opportunities in more than 280 undergraduate degree programs, top faculty, and impressive facilities. International students on temporary visas should expect to pay the full cost of attendance.
