 New Student Welcome

​​The Office of International Affairs is pleased to welcome new international students to campus! We look forward to meeting you and assisting with your transition to studying at Central Michigan University (CMU). 

You are starting an exciting time in your academic career and we are confident that you will find studying at CMU both challenging and rewarding. CMU has a reputation for being friendly and caring, with an international community of faculty, staff and over 1000 international students. Our campus is large enough to offer a wide variety of quality academic programs, yet small enough to give each student the personal attention necessary to help them succeed both academically and socially. We commend you on your choice of CMU and are certain that you will find academic success here. 

International students are required to check-in with OIA and to attend New International Student Orientation. These programs are designed to provide a foundation of knowledge for your success at CMU.

Again, welcome! We look forward to serving you.
