International Undergraduate Students

The U of M classifies you as an international applicant if you are not a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or refugee, of if you need a visa to study in the U.S. The Office of Admissions handles all applications for undergraduate admissions to the College of Design. Admission consideration of applicants is based on academic performance, academic preparation, and English proficiency (for non-native English speakers). Read on for helpful Websites.

  • Credit Transfer information: It is important that you contact a College of Design adviser if you completed transfer coursework directly related to your major. Just because you completed credits related to your major doesn't mean those credits will transfer to meet requirements in your University of Minnesota major.
  • Student Group Directory: For students who want to learn about the international organizations and activities at the U of M and across the Twin Cities.
