Degree-seeking international students (F-1 visa) apply to, and are admitted through, the UMF Admission Office. Once academically admitted, students work with the Office of Global Education to receive documents required for the visa application, make arrival and orientation preparations, and receive ongoing immigration advising.

To study on exchange at UMF (J-1 visa), you must first be nominated to the Office of Global Education by your home institution. Once the nomination is submitted, students will receive an email containing a unique link and detailed instructions to access the online Exchange Visitor application. The Office of Global Education will issue documents required for the visa application and provide arrival and orientation information as well as academic and immigration advising.

On this page, you will find information that will help you plan your UMF experience as an international degree-seeking or exchange student.
