International Student Admissions

International students have additional requirements for admission and registration and are required to complete an International Student Packet. International students must attend Schoolcraft College on a full-time basis (at least 12 credit hours per semester). Enrollment in the spring and/or summer sessions is optional in most cases.

  2. Submit transcripts. 
    High school transcripts can be sent electronically through the Parchment Exchange, or delivered to the Admissions and Welcome Center in person or via USmail, or fax to 734-462-4552. The same process applies to GED scores.
    Official college transcripts must be sent directly from the transfer institution’s Registrar’s office. Hand carried or “issued to student” copies will not be accepted or considered official.
  3. Valid visa status must be obtained and maintained. Schoolcraft College is authorized to issue eligibility visa documents (an I-20) for foreign nationals to obtain F-1 or M-1 student status either by changing their current visa status if they are in the U.S. or by obtaining an F-1 or M-1 visa through a U.S. consulate outside of the U.S. Prospective international students in the U.S. with another visa status must be sure that your current status allows full-time study.
      • To be issued the necessary visa documents the prospective international student must: 
        • Submit a completed International Student Packet.
