How to Apply

 

Located on UM's Ann Arbor campus, Lloyd Scholars for Writing and the Arts (LSWA) is open to all incoming first-year students, as well as currently enrolled second-year students and transfer students. 

 

Incoming (First-year) Students: The 2021-2022 Michigan Learning Communities (MLC) Application is live. For step-by-step instructions to complete the application, please watch our video:

 

 

-  If you apply by March 28th at 11:59 p.m. EST, you will know your status by April 7th at 5:00 p.m. EST.

 

- If you apply by May 5th final deadline at 11:59 p.m. EST, you will know your status by May 14th at 5:00 p.m. EST. 

 

For your convenience, we have included the LSWA-specific essay question that appears in the MLC application just below, so that you can begin thinking about your answer. We recommend that you write out your answer in a Word doc and cut and paste directly to the MLC application.

 

Describe a recent creative project (such as poetry, performance, visual arts, music, dance, theater, fiction, journalism, etc.) that exemplifies your interest in writing and the arts. How does it speak to your passions, leadership, or the ways you approach creative challenges?  (One brief paragraph.)

 

 

LSWA also welcomes transfer and second-year students, regardless of their residential status. However, those seeking residency in the residence halls are not guaranteed placement in 2021-22, as residency priority will be given to first-year students by Housing. 

 

 

Second-year Students: Currently-enrolled UM students who are interested in joining our community may apply beginning March 26th through April 30th. Please contact us by email, LSWA@umich.edu, and visit the Housing website to learn more about the application process. 

 

Transfer Students: Once you have been admitted to U-M, you may follow this link to apply to LSWA: The 2021-2022 Michigan Learning Communities (MLC) Application is live.  For your convenience, the LSWA-specific question that appears in the MLC application can be seen above. We recommend that you write out your answer in a Word doc and cut and paste directly to the MLC application.
