Application Guide

When you apply online, you will create a temporary, secure personal login. This lets you return to the application if you need to stop before it’s complete.

  • First-time users will be asked to create a login ID and a personal identification number (PIN) by selecting “First time user account creation”
  • Returning applicants: If you forget your login ID or password, please call our Admissions Office at (231) 995-1054.

You will be asked for the following information, so please have it on hand when you begin your application:

  • Type of application you’re submitting: i.e. regular student, returning student, international student, former dual-enrolled student.
  • Which semester you want to start classes (fall, spring, or summer)
  • Your personal contact information including Social Security Number
  • Emergency contact information: Who we should contact in case of an emergency
