Guest Students

To become an EMU guest student:

For graduate and undergraduate course(s)

If you are an undergraduate/graduate student from another school you may follow this procedure:

  • Complete the online or paper Application for Graduate Admission by selecting Guest Student on the application.
  • Submit the application and application fee.
  • In addition, submit sealed documentation from your university registrar indicating you are a student in good standing who will return to complete a program of study. This will prevent the need for official transcripts to be sent to EMU.

If you attend a participating Michigan university, the Michigan Council of Graduate Schools has authorized the use of the Michigan Intercollegiate Graduate Studies (MIGS) application form that enables graduate students from one Michigan university to enroll in graduate courses offered by another Michigan university without being fully admitted to that university. The course and grade will be transferred back to the student's home institution.

If you are an international student, the following additional documents are required:

  • For students with an F-1 or J-1 visa, International Student Adviser Letter
  • For students on other visas, a copy of that visa
  • Once you have a student number, you then may register online for the course. You will pay EMU tuition and fees.

When the course has been completed, you must request that EMU transcripts be sent to your university in order to receive transfer credit. This is handled through the Office of Records and Registration, 303 Pierce Hall.
