​If you are ready to begin your application, we can walk you step by step through the process. It all starts here – apply.cmich.edu.

You will find a complete checklist designed specifically for transfer students linked at the right, but here are a few important notes to keep in mind.

When should I apply?

Transfer students are encouraged to apply six months prior to the start of the term in which they wish to begin their studies. You are more than welcome to submit your application for review at any time. CMU grants admission on a rolling basis, meaning that we will admit students for the next available semester of study as applications arrive.

I am coming to campus – can I drop off my application in person?

Absolutely! Download a pdf of the undergraduate application or contact us to receive a copy in the mail. 

When will I hear an answer on my application?

​Applicants usually are notified of their admission status within three to four weeks of submitting a completed application.
