Final fall enrollment data for the University of Michigan show that 51,225 students are enrolled on the Ann Arbor campus, including 32,695 undergraduates and 7,050 first-year students.

This year’s class also includes 1,342 incoming transfer students from more than 300 colleges and universities throughout Michigan, the United States and around the world.

Among all undergraduates, 55.8% identify as white, 19.6% identify as Asian, 9.1% identify as Hispanic or Latino/Latina, 4.5% identify as Black, 0.1% identify as Native American and 0.1% identify as Hawaiian. Another 5.5% identify as multiethnic while 5.3% are unknown.

The university has continued to see significant interest from prospective first-year and transfer students, with nearly 90,000 applications submitted for this school year. Application volume has increased 30% for first-year students and 26% for transfer students since 2018.

“Students and families understand that the University of Michigan is a place where someone can pursue their passion and acquire the knowledge and skills they need to reach their goals,” said Adele C. Brumfield, vice provost for enrollment management.

“We are thrilled to welcome another class of talented leaders, who arrive on campus having maintained the strong academic rigor expected while also being involved in their schools and communities, working and caring for family. We are excited to see what these students will achieve in their time here at U-M.”

The new first-year and transfer students include 4,291 in-state students from 77 of Michigan’s 83 counties. Another 3,340 students hail from the remaining 49 states and two U.S. territories, and 761 new international students arrived from 69 countries.

The number of graduate and professional students increased by 3% over last year to 18,530 this fall.
