Applications for the 2022 academic year are now open! 

As you prepare to fill out your application for admission to Central Michigan University, here are the key components you need to know.

Apply online through CMU's website. Applications received by April 1 receive priority consideration for academic scholarships. Applications received after that date may result in limited availability of scholarships. (If you are applying to start for the spring semester, the priority consideration deadline is December 1.)

The application processing fee or a fee waiver is required when submitting your application. 

Have your official transcripts sent directly to CMU from all colleges you have attended, even if you do not believe you have earned any credit. 

If you have fewer than 24 college credits, you must also request to have your final official high school transcript sent to CMU

Some students may be admitted using the GPA(s) provided on their application. However, all official transcripts are required for scholarships, application of transfer credits, and course registration.
