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. 

Campus Days

If you've been admitted to next year's freshman class at the School of Kinesiology, attend one of our Campus Days! Campus Days are held only during Winter semester, and dates and times, once set, are posted on our Events page.

Campus Days are for admitted students and their parents/guardians. To learn more about U-M Campus Days, please visit their website.
