Visit Campus


U-M offers several visit options — including prospective freshman visits, transfer visits, special group visits, and bus tours — to answer your questions about everything from the value of a Michigan education to the basics about financial aid.

Prospective freshmen and their families can attend our Information Session and central campus walking tour, offered several times weekly. Transfer students can register for our Transfer Tuesdays, an Information Session and central campus walking tour designed just for them. 

Information sessions are one-hour presentations given by one of our knowledgeable and helpful admissions counselors. After that, you will embark on a 90-minute walking tour of central campus guided by a friendly current undergraduate student. The tour will show you this campus in close-up detail and give you the opportunity to feel the Wolverine spirit that lingers in the air in nearly every corner of campus.

Information Sessions and Tours
We offer two kinds of information sessions and tours, one designed for prospective freshmen, and another for transfer students. Your visit is the perfect time to get a feel for our distinct culture, learn about our world-class academics, speak with current students and faculty, and experience our beautiful campus and vibrant Ann Arbor.
