Prospective Student Advising

The School of Kinesiology is an excellent choice for a prospective freshman because it combines a close-knit, small school community with all the resources of the larger university.

A prospective freshman is someone who has not attended any institution of higher education following high school.

  • The Common Application (, University of Michigan Member Questions, and $75 application fee (or fee waiver request);

  • Secondary School Report;
  • One Teacher Evaluation from a core academic teacher;
  • ACT with writing or SAT (if taken as high school student -- otherwise, not required);
  • TOEFL, MELAB or IELTS scores (for non-native speakers of English).
