If you have received your letter of acceptance in the mail and are ready to become a CMU Chippewa, you're in the right spot! Finalize your enrollment as a CMU student with this step-by-step checklist.

Step 1 – Set up your new CMU account.

You'll need this account for almost everything, including:

  • Submitting your enrollment reservation deposit
  • Receiving your student ID number and Global ID
  • Setting up an official CMU email account
  • Applying for financial aid
  • Accepting your scholarships
  • Registering for classes and housing

Grab your unique "New CMU Account PIN," located on your letter of admission. If you need assistance locating your PIN, contact helpdesk@cmich.edu.

Set up my account

Step 2 – Submit your deposit

Officially reserve your place in the upcoming class by paying the one-time enrollment reservation deposit of $175. The deposit is fully refundable if you cancel your admission to CMU prior to May 1 (or December 1 if you are beginning classes in the spring semester). Log in using the Global ID and password you set up in step one.

Pay the enrollment reservation deposit

Step 3 – Accept your scholarship

Once your deposit has been paid, you will be able to accept your Academic Prestige Award, Academic Excellence Award, Academic Success Award, or Residence Life Grant for Freshmen. Log in using the Global ID and password you set up in step one.
