You’re absolutely correct. We’ll even send you a postcard once you receive your scores so you know that we have them!

The Early Action deadline is November 1, so make sure all your stuff is submitted (including prior test scores so your app is complete) before that. To answer your question - YES you may submit additional test scores later for consideration. Have them sent directly from the testing agency and when we receive them we will add them to your file.

We don’t have those numbers at this point in the year - however, there are NO guarantees. Your GPA is looked at in the context of your school’s curriculum, your extracurriculars are important, as is your essay. There might be a student with a 36 ACT, but they took all easy classes when their school offered advanced or AP classes, they have no extracurriculars, and their essay didn’t tell us anything about them (and was riddled with typos). We don’t just want great scores, we want great people

In short - generally, yes, perfect GPAs and test scores are excellent indicators, but you need to win us over with who you are beyond that in order to be offered admission.

Unfortunately, no. If you have previously taken the ACT with Writing or SAT and are taking the test again in October, you must send in your previous scores to complete your application. Once your new test scores from the October exam are received, we will add the new test information to your application and consider that in the review process. On the day of the test you must indicate that you want your scores sent to the University of Michigan so that we will receive them as soon as the scores are available.

You can’t hear them, but these frogs my mom put in our flower pots are screaming “GO BLUE” one ribbit at a time. #100happydays #day61 #UofM #umich #goblue #victors2018 🐸🌺🌼

Yay! Welcome to the #Victors2018!

We can’t chance anyone, however it is ALWAYS in your best interest to apply Early Action - no matter what your GPA/scores are.

You’re all set! We’ll take the info from the Move-In Maker application and change your move-in date to August 26. You don’t need to do a thing. So happy to have you on the team!

Q: I’m coming to Michigan with a lot of… stuff. Will I get help moving in?

A: Absolutely! If you’re arriving during our regular move-in program, Thursday August 28 and Friday August 29, you’ll be SURROUNDED by a throng of Move-In Makers, our student volunteers. They’ve got these wheeled blue bins (probably magical), and they’ll IMMEDIATELY set to hauling anything out of your car that vaguely resembles a furnishing: floor mats, spare tires, slow-moving siblings - they’re on a mission!

And - brace yourself - YOU could be a Move-In Maker! Yes, even incoming freshmen can join this elite team - you’ll move in to campus EARLY (Tuesday, August 26), get trained, get YOUR FREE T-SHIRT, and work a few shifts with your new teammates. It’s a great way to meet people the second you get here.

Sign up at: housing.umich.edu/MIM-volunteers

Edit: Hey, future Move-In Makers! Be sure to sign out of any google accounts and log in with your umich email in order to sign up for the program! You must be logged in under your umich account in order to apply. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Move-In Maker Committee at hsg-movein-makers@umich.edu

We have many students who apply from the British pattern of educations and they send copies of their GCSEs and their current school official send predicted A levels. You can also visit our website for country requirements and look at the section on the “British pattern” for required credentials (here: admissions.umich.edu/international-requirements-by-country).

Good luck and Go Blue!

Right around now, would be good. It can take a while to get visas, so the earlier the better!

Also, for all our international students - the International Center hosts many events once you arrive on campus! Check out their scheduled events here: internationalcenter.umich.edu/events/orientation_social.html

Not to make your head spin, but for the School of Music, Theatre & Dance the answer is actually: neither.

SMTD is a special case, because of the whole audition situation. They don’t do Early Action and their Regular Decision date is earlier. Your application to SMTD is due by December 1. HOWEVER, they start scheduling auditions as they review apps (basically you’re reviewed on an academic level before you’re invited to audition). This means that (and this actually applies to all schools, but particularly this one) the earlier you apply, the better.

The short answer here is - yes. There are so many clubs, groups and just plain people on campus that you’ll find yourself getting into the groove right away. Whether it’s making new friends in your dorm, hanging out with other students after class, or checking out the Arab Xpressions Show and joining one of their groups - you’ll find that you’re welcome. We have students from 114 countries represented on campus and - whether they’re born and raised here in Michigan or flying in from Thailand - when the Fall rolls around EVERYONE is a new kid. Don’t worry about a thing, Ann Arbor will feel like home in no time. Follow the #Victors2018 (or 2019) tag on social media (especially twitter) to start connecting with your fellow students!


Good luck and Go Blue!
