If you're entering the University of Michigan with interests in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or pre-health, you are eligible to apply to the WISE RP. Students who have completed their first year in the WISE RP are also eligible to apply for a mentorship or program board position for their second year.
To learn more about the WISE RP application process, timeline, and essay questions, please click here. You may contact the WISE RP staff directly at 734.936.6536 or email us to learn more about our program. You can apply to the program directly through the University Housing online application at www.housing.umich.edu. Admitted students who pay the enrollment deposit will receive access to the online Housing Application in late March, or a few weeks after paying the deposit. There are no additional costs to participate in the program. Please submit your WISE RP application (through the Housing Application) by May 6th, 2019.
WISE RP will not honor roommate requests made via the housing application. Additionally, Michigan Learning Commmunty applications take precedence over roommate requests. If admitted to an MLC, successful applicants' roommate requests may not be considered. Further, it is possible for one roommate to be admitted to WISE RP and the other declined.
Beginning in early June, students will be contacted about the status of their application to all of the Michigan Learning Communities, including WISE RP. Each year WISE RP receives applications from more students than we can accept.
