International students with F-1, F-2, J-1, J-2, and G-series visas are required to show proof of enough resources to meet their expenses while attending U-M and federal regulations limit financial assistance. There is no financial aid available to international students through the U-M Office of Financial Aid, though a short-term university loan may be available in the case of emergencies (see information below).
Graduate applicants should contact their admitting department, school or college to inquire about help available in those areas.

- If you have been admitted to U-M, contact your U-M school/college or department for other possible funding sources.
Private Loans: Some U.S. lenders will provide private education loans for international students who have a qualified U.S. co-signer. Some lenders require that the student have a Social Security number prior to applying. See our Private Loans page for more information. U-M has not endorsed these programs, but is making the information available to you.
