How to Apply

MCSP welcomes first-year students from all schools and colleges within the University of Michigan. Apply to become a Michigan Community Scholar by completing the Michigan Learning Community application. You may apply to two residential Michigan Learning Communities, ranking your first and second choices.

The Michigan Learning Community (MLC) Application opens on February 15, 2024. Michigan Learning Communities review applications in the order of preference you indicate in your application. You will be contacted about the status of your applications to the Michigan Learning Communities starting in early April. You will only be admitted to one residential Michigan Learning Community. In other words, it is possible to be in Honors (non-residential) and MCSP, but not in Health Sciences Scholars Program (HSSP) and MCSP.

Any student who has been admitted to U-M may apply, even if you have not made their final decision on U-M and paid an enrollment deposit.

Please refer to theĀ U-M Housing website for additional information about housing.
