International Application Deadlines:

International Students Living Outside the USA

International students who are living outside the USA and require a F-1 visa appointment, should  submit all application materials, be admitted, and submit their $500 deposit six weeks prior to the beginning of the semester of intake. This is to ensure there is enough time to send an I-20, sit for a visa appointment*, settle up affairs at home, make flight accommodations and confirm your attendance to the international admissions team.

*If a visa appointment cannot be made at least one week prior to semester start date, the I-20 will be changed to the next available semester. 

Canadian Students Living Outside the USA

Canadian students living outside the USA, are not required to  make a visa appointment, and may follow the  deadline  international students who are living   in the USA . 

International Students Currently Living In the USA

For F-1 students currently in the USA, you must submit all application materials, be admitted and pay the deposit two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester of intake. This allows adequate time for application processing, and completion of the transfer in process in SEVIS.

Founded in 1978, the Michigan Language Center (MLC) is the leading private English language school in Ann Arbor, MI. It serves international students, business executives, and students and visiting scholars from the University of Michigan from over 25 countries. The Michigan Language Center has had over 50,000 student enrollments since it began in 1978. Students have gone on to significantly improve their TOEFL scores, gain admissions to a variety of US universities and colleges in many different states and to improve their business success.

The center is accredited by ACCET (Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training) which is recognized by the US Department of Education. This allows the Michigan Language Center to issue the Form I-20, which is the first step in applying for a student visa to the United States.
