U-M applications, projected freshman enrollment reach all-time high 

June 30, 2010: For the fourth consecutive year, the University of Michigan received a record number of applications from prospective freshmen, and applications and paid deposits are up for underrepresented minority students. 


Overall, there were 31,599 applications for academic year 20102011, as compared to 29,939 in the previous year.  As of June 1, 15,979 of these applicants were offered admission to the Universitys Ann Arbor campus. 

The projected size of the entering class is approximately 6,350, an 
increase of about 300 over last year.  If this projection proves 
accurate, 2010 will see the largest incoming class in the history of 
the University.  Plans are well underway to support this larger than 
average class in academic resources, housing, transportation, and 
related services. 

Class size varies each year and is the result of normal fluctuations 
in the applicant population and other variables such as the economy. 
These are preliminary numbers; final enrollment figures will be 
available in October. 

The steady growth in applications demonstrates the tangible value of 
a University of Michigan education, said Lester P. Monts, senior vice 
provost of academic affairs.  Excellence in our undergraduate 
programs is by far the top priority among students and their families. 
The Universitys invigorating campus environment materially 
contributes to our students academic life by providing countless 
opportunities to enrich their experiences through the arts, hands-on 
research experiences, and global inter-cultural studies.  Prospective 
students and their families fully appreciate the importance of 
American and global diversity and the doorways U-M opens to experience 
the world and to learn from its many complexities. 

Applications from underrepresented minority students increased by 836 
to a total of 3,715.  Of those who applied, 1,636 were offered 
admission, a rise of 224 over the previous year. The number of 
underrepresented minority students who have paid the enrollment 
deposit grew to 724, an increase of 143 as compared to last year.  At 
U-M, the term underrepresented minority is interpreted to include 
African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans. 

Diversity is an inherent element of the University of Michigan 
community, said Monts.  And we have found that the Universitys 
commitment to diversity motivates many of the most highly qualified 
students to choose Michigan. 

Overall, of the 15,979 freshman applicants offered admission, 6,900 
have paid enrollment deposits.  This 43.2 percent yield rate (number 
of students who pay deposits as a percentage of those who are offered 
admission) is the same as the previous year.  Because some students 
ultimately choose not to attend, enrollment deposits do not directly 
correspond to the number of students who enroll in the fall. 

By every measure, the qualifications of our applicant pool are on a 
steady upward trajectory, said Ted Spencer, associate vice provost 
and executive director of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 
The substantial increase in applications affords every opportunity to 
assemble an incoming class that will be remarkable both for their 
academic excellence and achievement, as well as their contributions to 
the University community during their years on campus. 

Common Application to Start Aug. 1 

The recruitment cycle for 20102011 began in early June, and 
prospective students can submit applications as of Aug. 1. 

U-M recently joined the national Common Application network.  This 
means there is no longer a University of Michigan-specific 
application.  As of Aug. 1, applicants are encouraged to apply online 
at commonapp.org.  A very limited number of hard-copy applications 
will be available for those who require that option. 

U-M decided to join the Common Application because we are always 
looking for ways to do better.  Especially in these challenging 
economic times, we are looking for ways to do better with less, said 
Spencer.  We believe the Common App will streamline the application 
process for students, teachers, and counselors.  And, our peer schools 
who belong to the Common Application communitysuch as Stanford, the 
University of Virginia, and Northwesternreport several benefits from 
its use, including increased numbers and quality overall, and 
specifically in diversity and geographic and socioeconomic reach. 

Admissions decisions at the University of Michigan are based on the 
individualized and comprehensive holistic review of all information 
received about each applicant. As part of its individualized, holistic 
review, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions also uses the College 
Boards geodemographic tool, called Descriptor PLUS, to identify high 
school clusters and neighborhoods that are not well represented among 
the U-M student community.  The office has increased recruitment staff 
in both its Ann Arbor and Detroit offices.  President Mary Sue Coleman 
and the Universitys executive officers, along with staff, students 
and faculty, participate each year in encouraging admitted students to 
enroll.
