are thinking about applying, it is important you have a clear
understanding of the admissions criteria. Admission is based
on the strength of an applicant's high school background, including
the degree of difficulty of courses selected, the record of academic
achievement, special or unique accomplishments both in and out
of the classroom, and the ACT or SAT I scores.
applicants' credentials should include "B" average
or better (beyond the ninth grade) in a rigorous and appropriate
college preparatory program, and standardized test scores comparable
to freshmen pursuing similar programs in the University. Decisions
are made on an individual basis. No specific class rank, grade
point average, test score, or other qualifications by itself
will assure admission.
University does not offer probationary admission. To be admitted
at the freshmen level, an applicant must be at least 16 years
old and a graduate of an accredited secondary school. Home-schooled
students and graduates of unaccredited schools may be required
to submit the results of additional nationally normed test such
as the SAT II Subject Examinations. For older students, the results
of the General Education Development (GED) test may be presented
in place of a high school diploma.
College of Literature, Science, and the Arts and several professional
schools and colleges of the University of Michigan (i.e.,
A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture, School of Dentistry, School of Information, College of Pharmacy, School of Social
Work) have developed a preferred
admissions program for a limited number of highly qualified
entering freshmen that guarantees admission to specific professional
programs. Further information about the preferred admissions
program is available from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
