Admissions and Aid

Don't just adapt to a changing world. Be the one who shapes it.

Be you at CMU

They say you can't pick your family, but that's only partly true. When you become a CMU Chippewa, you'll join a family 250,000 strong — not just cheering you on, but lifting you up.

You can't be your best unless you can be yourself. You'll have all the space you need to find your voice — and do something with it.

Why go to Central Michigan University?

Leading with confidence

We're all about doing what we love, doing it best, and making a living doing it. We design clothing lines, Baja off-road vehicles and new cures for diseases. We pitch our business ideas "shark tank" style, write poetry, teach new generations and step out on stages and in front of cameras.

And you don't have to wait to do it. That starts on day one. So you'll have the knowledge to earn your degree and the experience to launch your career.

Because when we see an opportunity to make a difference, we don't wait for someone else to step up.

We do.
