The University of Michigan International Center (IC) is the main interface unit for international students and scholars, American students, foreign faculty and staff, and international visitors. The Center helps international students and scholars to become accustomed to life in this country in order to make their stay an enjoyable one. The office assists American students who would like to travel abroad, whether by finding a job or scholarship, finding a place to stay, or suggesting travel spots.

IC staff provide a number of services to international faculty, scholars, students, and staff during their time at U-M, such as assisting with complex federal and state regulations concerning immigration, travel, employment, and taxes. The IC also acts as a liaison with various agencies, foundations, and sponsors; and assists University departments in complying with immigration regulations concerning the hiring of international faculty and staff.  See also section 5.G.6 “International Faculty”.
