Canadian students

Every day, thousands of Canadian students cross the Ambassador Bridge to study at Wayne State. In fact, our Canadian student enrollment has increased 70 percent in the last year.

You may qualify for the Great Lakes Award, which offers Michigan in-state tuition rates plus 10% to Ontario residents — a savings of more than 50 percent.

You are considered a Canadian student if you are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada. If you are a U.S. citizen living in Canada, you should complete the domestic undergraduate admissions application.
