The Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Michigan is beginning to welcome its class of 2020 at summer orientation.

U-M reviewed and processed 55,500 applications for admission in the freshman class that will begin classes this fall. Applications increased 7 percent from last year’s 51,761.

As of May, just more than 16,100 students were offered admission to yield a class of approximately 6,600 freshmen for an overall acceptance rate of 29 percent. More detailed enrollment numbers will be available following the official student count in the third week of classes in the fall.

This early snapshot of U-M admissions shows that of the 55,500 applications, 10,959 were submitted by in-state students with 4,511 being offered admissions for an acceptance rate of 42.4 percent.

From among the 35,783 applications submitted by students living in states other than Michigan and the 8,758 applicants living in other countries, 10,815 were offered admission for an out-of-state acceptance rate of 24.5 percent.

Incoming freshmen will come to campus throughout the summer for orientation sessions and to register for classes. The fall semester begins Sept. 6 on the Ann Arbor campus.
