The 2013-2014 Common Application is now live, but there's no rush to apply. The University of Michigan specific questions are still under technical development, so that portion can't be filled out quite yet. (Your application needs these questions to be completed and submitted for us to start evaluating).

In the interim, you can still get a great start on the main application page, begin drafting your U-M essays, and start preparing some of the materials for your DecisionDesk profile.

The deadline to apply for fall admission (December 1) is still months away, so you have plenty of time!

Continue to the Common Application.
