Admission to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities is highly competitive. For example, for Fall 2021 admission, we received more than 36,000 applications for a freshman class of approximately 6,900 students. While we were very grateful for the strong interest in the University of Minnesota, the number of applications submitted and the strength of the applicant pool has created a competitive admissions situation.
