University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute


Visa Applications

  • Once the decision to enroll has been officially established, I-20/DS-2019 and SEVIS processing will begin. Upon completion of the process, the official forms for all JI students will be delivered to the IPE office of the CoE at University of Michigan so that they can be securely mailed to the appropriate JI personnel for distribution to the students. Once the proper documentation has been received by the students, they must complete the visa process with the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. It is recommended that this process be conducted as early as possible to provide adequate time.
  • A very useful website that provides guidance for the visa process is the UM International Center Visa Assistance website.
