During any visa application to the US you may be subject to additional security and background clearances due to your citizenship, ties to specific countries, field of study, or other reasons. These additional clearance checks may take several weeks to several months to process. There is no way to circumvent or expedite this process. If a security check is going to significantly delay your arrival to University of Michigan, please complete this form.
