International Students 

This school is authorized under federal law to enroll non-immigrant alien students.


International students are required to provide additional information to the school in order to apply for an M-1 student Visa.  The student Visa is made available to the student upon enrolling into the Motion Picture Production Program.


To expedite this process:

International applicants are asked to fill out the international student section of the Motion Picture Production Program Application and to provide information such as country of citizenship, a statement of financial eligibility and proficiency in English. This information must be submitted along with the program application either directly on the application or submitted via email to info@mpifilm.com.

Students seeking assistance in housing may contact our admissions office. For any additional information or questions regarding the forms, you may contact our admissions office at 248-528-1760 or email at info@mpifilm.com.

International students are required to take all four concentrations (this does not affect the price of the quoted international student tuition of $15,500.00) plus they must take additional supervised lab hours during the 1st, 2nd and 4th semesters.

Total clock hour requirement for international students is 808 clock hours.
