Freshmen choose from four application options: Early Decision I, Early Action, Early Decision II, or Regular Decision.

Please note, admission and financial aid applications that remain incomplete by the deadlines will be at a distinct disadvantage and likely will not be admitted.

Early Decision I

EARLY DECISION I (EDI) is our early, binding application option for applicants who are committed to attending UM if admitted. EDI applicants will receive admission decisions and estimated financial aid awards in late December.

If applying Early Decision I or II, you must complete and submit the Early Decision Agreement form, available through the Common Application.
