More than 65,000 apply for incoming freshman class


The University of Michigan class of 2022 is beginning to take shape as new Wolverines prepare for summer orientation sessions in Ann Arbor beginning this month.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions reviewed and processed 65,684 applications for admission in the freshman class that will arrive on campus this fall. Applications increased 10.6 percent from last year’s 59,407, once again setting a new record for application volume.

As of May, more than 15,400 students were offered admission to yield a class of approximately 6,600 freshmen for an overall acceptance rate of 23.5 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 65,684 applications, 12,521 were submitted by in-state students with 5,141 being offered admissions for an acceptance rate of 41.1 percent.

From among the 44,014 applications submitted by students living in states other than Michigan and the 9,149 applicants living in other countries, 10,327 were offered admission for an out-of-state acceptance rate of 19.4 percent.

The fall semester begins Sept. 4 on the Ann Arbor campus.
