As part of the University of Michigan undergraduate admissions process, applicants are required to respond to a set of conduct questions. These questions are designed to help the university maintain a safe and secure environment and to support the success of our students.
Answers to the questions do not automatically bar applicants from admission, and answers are reviewed only after an initial determination is made that the applicant meets the university's standards for admission.
Students are asked to answer the following questions on their application:
- Have you ever been found responsible for a disciplinary violation at any educational institution you have attended from the 9th grade (or the international equivalent) forward, whether related to academic misconduct or behavioral misconduct, that resulted in a disciplinary action? These actions could include, but are not limited to: probation, suspension, removal, dismissal, or expulsion from the institution.
- Have you ever been adjudicated guilty of a felony as an adult, or adjudicated responsible for any offense as a juvenile, involving violent or assaultive behavior, weapon possession, property destruction, or sexually related offenses? (Note: You may answer "no" to this question if the adjudication was withheld, or has been expunged, sealed, annulled, pardoned, destroyed, erased, impounded, or otherwise required by law or order of a court to be kept confidential.)
- Is any felony charge involving violent or assaultive behavior, weapon possession, property destruction, or sexually related offenses pending against you?
- Is any allegation of academic or disciplinary misconduct at any secondary school, college, or university currently pending against you?
Admitted students have an ongoing responsibility to inform the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or admitting office of any changes to their disciplinary and/or criminal history until they begin their first term of enrollment at the university. Failure to report prior or pending disciplinary and/or criminal history may result in the withdrawal of application or revocation of admission.
