Submit a financial statement verifying that you have the financial resources to cover $27,270 USD (2023-2024 rates) in expenses for each year, for non-health science majors. Bank statements, affidavits of sponsorship, etc. should be supplied to support the financial statement.

If you have made arrangements to reside with a friend or relative while attending Mid and can provide a signed Financial Support Form, financial verification limits may be reduced.

It's very important for students and sponsors to fully evaluate financial resources before pursuing admission as Mid has no grants, loans, or student employment available for international students and, based upon F-1 student visa rules/regulations, international students are not eligible to work off-campus

Mid asks that you provide proof of health insurance coverage, but this is optional. You can purchase health insurance for approximately $500 per year, through HTH Worldwide, Specialty Risk International, Inc., or International Student Insurance (ISI). These are just three possible health insurance options, there are many others.

Mid Michigan College does not endorse or have any affiliation with any health insurance provider.
