fee for services and support rendered. The fee of $350 is assessed during the Fall and Spring
semesters for International Sponsored Students who are registered during those semesters. The fee

Enrolling and Registering as a Visitor

A person may be permitted to enroll in credit courses as a visitor on a
non-credit basis. Credit may not be earned in courses taken as a visitor except
by reenrollment for credit in the course and completion of the course with a
satisfactory grade. To be enrolled as a visitor, a student must enroll in the
same manner as for credit courses and pay the same tuition and fees as for a
credit registration.

Choice of enrollment in a credit course as a visitor on a non-credit basis must
be made by the fifth day of the semester of instruction and may not be
subsequently changed. Arrange visitor enrollment in 150 Administration
Building, or call 517-355-3300.

Students enrolled as visitors are expected to attend classes regularly. Those
so enrolled who do not attend regularly may be dropped from the classes at the
request of the instructor.

Fee Classification

If there is a question on a student's right to an in-state fee classification,
it is the student's responsibility to discuss it with the Associate Registrar
for Enrollment and Registration (150 Administration Building,
432-3488) at least one month before registering.

etc., the student must enroll and pay for at least one credit hour and
