Enrollment confirmation deadline
When students confirm their enrollment, they are declaring their intent to attend the University of Minnesota, and we will reserve a place for them in the incoming class.
Deadline alert: The enrollment confirmation deadline was May 1, 2013. At this time, we are still accepting confirmations for most colleges for fall 2013. Please note that because confirmation fees submitted after the May 1 deadline are accepted on a space-available basis, we will assess the space situation in your college at the time that your confirmation is received. We will let you know as quickly as possible, but no later than two weeks after your confirmation is received, if space remains available. If we determine that space is no longer available, your $250 enrollment confirmation fee will be refunded.
Important note for students admitted April 18, 2013, or later: Your enrollment confirmation deadline is specified in your letter of admission. Please refer to your letter of admission for your deadline date.
