LEARNING COMMUNITIES, WITHIN VARIOUS RESIDENCE HALLS

Michigan Learning Communities (MLCs) are for new students who wish to combine their academic and residential experiences in a close-knit community. By joining an MLC, students are given access to specialized courses and programming geared towards your interests. MLCs provide the best of both worlds by combining the personal attention of a small college environment with the unparalleled resources of a large research university.

New for 2020, students can apply before having made their enrollment decision.

The priority deadline for consideration is May 6, 2020. After May 6, spots may be available but are not guaranteed.

Applications are available here.
