Graduate International Admissions

​​​​​​CMU offers over 70 graduate degree programs at the master's, specialist, and doctoral levels, including certificates. 

Central Michigan University supports applicants who have been impacted by COVID-19.  Students who are temporarily unable to obtain required application materials (transcripts, test scores, etc.) due to COVID-19-related closures of schools and test centers should call us at 989-774-1619, email, or message us on WhatsApp (989-774-1619).  Options may include submitting unofficial transcripts or test scores for the purpose of evaluating the application.  Some graduate programs may be offering alternatives for those who have not taken required tests (GRE, GMAT, etc.).  

For Summer/Fall 2021, we are allowing students to demonstrate English-proficiency using Duolingo scores.  Students must score 100+ for full admission.  Students may also be admitted to CMU’s Undergraduate Bridge Program or start a graduate degree by taking a course through CMU’s English Language Institute.

​​List of Graduate Programs

Prospective international students should apply at least six months before the semester in which they wish to enroll.
This allows enough time to receive and consider all the materials that are part of the application.  In addition, this allows enough time for students to apply for their student visa.

Please use the checklist below.  The I-20 or DS-2019 (visa eligibility form) will not be issued until the International Student and Scholar Services office receives the required financial support information.
