We do not have a preference for which application platform you use, but please submit only one application. Submitting more than one application will delay your admission decision.
Please note: Transfer students can apply for fall 2019 admission using only the Golden Gopher or Coalition applications at this time.
The University of Minnesota welcomes free speech. A student applying for admission to the University, who has been suspended for participation in a protest, would not be required to report such activities. In the application for admission, we do provide students with space to share more information about themselves and their particular beliefs and the activities in which they have engaged and feel are important.
To be considered for admission, freshman applicants must submit an Academic Record using the University of Minnesota self-reported Academic Record site. Applicants from all application sites (Golden Gopher, Common Application, Coalition Application) should use this site to self-report.
We look at several pieces of information to make an admission decision. Be sure to use these application checklists to ensure your application is complete by the deadline!
Be sure to meet these important deadlines! Applications received or completed after the priority deadline will be reviewed on a space-available basis.
You can use this tool to determine which application materials have been received, and whether a decision has been made on your application.
