On Campus Undergraduates Returning to CMU

  • If you are a CMU student in good standing and planning to enroll in on-campus classes after an absence of less than 3 years you are classified as a re-entering student. You do not need to reapply for admission and can register as you normally would. If you have not attended for three (3) or more years, we need to collect current information before you will be allowed to register for classes. Please click on the link Returning CMU Student to start the process.

    If your matriculation was cancelled (dismissal or suspension), you must contact the Academic Advising and Assistance Office at 989-774-3465.

  • If you are a CMU on-campus undergraduate student in good standing and planning to enroll in classes after an absence of less than three (3) years and have no holds, you may use CentralLink to register for classes.

  • To access CentralLink, you will need your global ID and password. If you do not have a global ID or have forgotten your global ID and password, please contact the Help Desk at (989) 774-3662 for assistance.
