UPDATE: Due to space limitations, many remaining Campus Day dates are near or at capacity. To provide more opportunities to visit campus, we are opening the opportunity to register for Admitted Student Tours, which will be tailored specifically for students who have been accepted to U-M. You may sign up for an Admitted Student Tour by visiting the Campus Day page linked from Enrollment Connect.


Campus Day offers admitted students the unique opportunity to tour campus, learn more about what it means to be a Wolverine, and have questions answered by current students, faculty, and staff before deciding to Go Blue!

The day-long event includes presentations on what makes U-M unique, an overview of housing and student life on campus, a tour of campus, lunch in a dining hall, sessions from your particular school or college, and optional sessions on financial aid and Michigan Learning Communities.

To sign up for Campus Day, please click the button below. Select your application after logging in to Enrollment Connect. You will then see the registration button in your portal.

If you are a dual applicant, please select the application for the school or college's session you'd like to attend. You can do this by selecting the application upon logging into Enrollment Connect, or if already logged in, by clicking App Details and selecting the application associated with the Campus Day event for the school or college you'd like to attend.

Cost

  • Admitted student: $15
  • Admitted student and one parent or guardian: $30
  • Admitted student and two parents or guardians: $40

The fees cover the entire cost of the program. This includes parking, refreshments, and meals for the day.

Fee waivers are available to those who qualify and in most cases will be automatically applied when you register for Campus Day.

We encourage parents or guardians to visit with their students, but it is not required and some admitted students choose to participate on their own. Campus Day is for admitted students and their parents or guardians only. Due to limited space, we are not able to accommodate parties larger than three.

Student Panel: Student Life at Michigan (9:50-10:25 a.m.)

Have you ever wanted the chance to ask current U-M college students what their experiences are like, with questions such as: What’s the first year like at Michigan? What is there to do outside the classroom? These questions and many others will be answered by a panel of students as they share what it's really like to be a Wolverine.

Walking Tour (10:30 a.m.-1 p.m.)

The best way to get a feel for the University of Michigan is to experience it firsthand on a student-led tour of Central Campus. The tour includes lunch in a dining hall. At the conclusion of your walking tour, we will drop you off at your academic unit for the rest of the day.
