Your journey at the U of M begins now. Here's what you'll need to know along the way:

Get your information right from the source. Don't rely on second-hand information about entrance requirements, the selection process, how competitive it is to get into a particular program, or how to transfer credits from other faculties or institutions.

Plan for your second year. If you're a University 1 student looking to go into Arts or Science, please note that eligible students can transit directly to these faculties through the registration system. All other U1 students need to complete an application to be admitted to the faculty, school, or college of their choice.
