Michigan—You belong here.

This is a great school with terrific faculty and students. We look forward to talking with you about our rich and diverse graduate programs, our outstanding faculty, and the vast resources and opportunities available through the greater U-M community.

The School of Music, Theatre & Dance and the Rackham Graduate School will be closed for the winter holiday beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, December 22. We will return at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 2. During the holiday, there will be no processing of application materials and no updates to your Wolverine Access account.
