For Incoming International Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Michigan College of Engineering!

The College of Engineering International Buddy Program matches new international engineering undergraduate students (such as yourself), with current engineering undergraduate students. Sign up to become a member of the Buddy Program by completing the Incoming International Student Sign-up Form online. Once you have been matched, the UM students will contact you via e-mail to answer your questions about campus and the Ann Arbor area. The UM students will also assist you as you get settled in to our community in August/September. We hope you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Buddies will be assigned in order of receipt, so it is important to sign-up right away if you are interested. If you would like to learn more about the buddy program before signing up, please visit the Buddy Program home page where detailed information and pictures of past events is available. This program is currently open to undergraduate engineering students only. Incoming Graduate Students who are interested in a buddy should sign up for the Rackham I-Connect Program from this page. The Rackham I-Connect program connects students from various disciplines throughout the university. Incoming Undergraduate Students: Sign-up for the Buddy Program online!
