Below, you’ll find the various ways you can apply for admission as a first-year or transfer applicant, along with deadlines for special programs. Admission and financial aid applications, for both first-year and transfer applicants, that remain incomplete by the stated deadlines will be at a distinct disadvantage and likely will not be admitted.

is our early, binding application option for applicants who are committed to attending UM if admitted.*

EARLY ACTION (EA) is our early, non-binding application option.

EARLY DECISION II (EDI) is an additional binding application option for applicants who are committed to attending UM if admitted but need more time to apply.*
