Applying to IESL

Applying to IESL

You may apply for admission any time after September 1 of the year that precedes the academic year in which you wish to enroll. You should begin the application process as soon as possible after September 1 so that you have adequate time to obtain the necessary documents for your application and obtain your visa. Your complete credentials must be on file at Michigan Tech at least 30 days prior to your enrollment date. Your application and supporting documents are retained by Michigan Tech and will not be returned to you or forwarded to another college or university.
