Before you Apply
International students who are non-native English speakers will need to demonstrate a command of the English language. International students should also be aware that application deadlines vary for freshman and transfer students, although most freshmen can only apply for admission in the fall. You will find detailed information about all of these subjects when you follow the links for either International Freshman or International Transfer below.

Important Messages from the University
Statement of Agents
The University of Minnesota Twin Cities does not partner with third parties (agents) to represent the University nor to recruit or enroll international students. Agents may be retained by students and their families to assist them with the application process but these agents are not agents of the University nor do they have a contractual agreement with the University of Minnesota. Students and their families who are interested in the University of Minnesota can request information through our Passport to the U website.
University of Minnesota Medical School
Students interested in becoming medical doctors must first complete an undergraduate degree, then apply for medical school admission. However, the University of Minnesota Medical School applicant eligibility states that they are not accepting international applications at this time.
China Summer Program Credits
The University of Minnesota Twin Cities does not accept any Chinese summer program credits. Please note that we will not transfer any credits completed through programs at Chinese colleges, universities or programs. This information is also posted on our website.
