The Carlson Global Institute team is here to support you as you embark on what we hope will be among the most rewarding and empowering experiences of your life. The first step is to apply for admission as an international exchange student.
Submitting your application by the deadline will ensure that you receive your paperwork from the University of Minnesota in time to apply for a student visa. You may apply before the deadline, but to do so you must be nominated by your home school coordinator.
Late applications will delay your acceptance to the program and important visa paperwork. If you cannot submit your application materials by the deadline, email email@example.com with an expected delivery date.
Complete the University of Minnesota Application for International Exchange Admission:
Complete the Financial Certification Statement, found on page 4 of the application.
In addition to completing the Financial Certification Statement, you must provide proof of funding for your semester abroad. The documentation must match the amount of funding you indicate in the "Sources of Funding" section of the form. For 2013-2014 you must provide documentation of at least:
Examples include bank statements, a letter from your bank, or a letter from a government agency or organization.
Submit proof of English language proficiency: TOEFL score of 550 (written), 213 CBT, or 79 IBT, 80 MELAB or 6.5 IELTS.
If you do not have test scores, submit a letter from your exchange coordinator stating that your English proficiency is adequate to succeed in advanced university-level business classes.
We waive this requirement for native English speakers.
When your application is complete, submit copies by mail to:
Carlson Global Institute, Carlson Incoming Exchange Program
Carlson School of Management
University of Minnesota
321 Nineteenth Avenue South, Suite 2-210
Minneapolis, MN 55455
You must send your documents by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax first, but we need the original documents to process your visa paperwork.
