UPDATE: Due to space limitations, all remaining Campus Day dates are at capacity. For another opportunity to visit campus, we welcome you to register for one of our Admitted Student Tours, which are tailored specifically for admitted students. Sign up for an Admitted Student Tour by visiting the Campus Day page linked from Enrollment Connect. (Note: You will not be able to sign up for an Admitted Student Tour if you’ve already registered for Campus Day.)
Campus Day offers you the unique opportunity to experience campus as an admitted student. Join us for Campus Day to tour campus, learn more about what it means to be a Wolverine, and have your 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 residence hall, sessions with your particular school or college, and optional sessions on financial aid and Michigan Learning Communities.
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 in to 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.
