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 federal financial aid and limited scholarship funding available to international students attending U-M, though a short-term university loan may be available in the case of emergencies (see information below). Any scholarship consideration requires no additional application. Student athletes should work through the U-M Athletic Department for potential scholarships in that area.
Graduate applicants should contact their admitting department, school or college to inquire about help available in those areas. U-M schools and colleges have very limited funding for undergraduate international students.

For information about financial aid and private scholarships for international students contact:
- The U.S. Department of State
- The Consulate or Embassy of your home country
- 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.
