Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Eastern Michigan University, founded in 1849, is a public, multipurpose university. It delivers "The Learning Edge," the valuable competencies students gain through real-world application and experimental learning. Programs are offered through the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Human Services and Technology. Eastern emphasizes both relevant coursework and out-of-class experiences, thus preparing students for both gainful employment and, if desired, postgraduate study. Its 460-acre campus is located in Ypsilanti, seven miles from Ann Arbor.
