Already Admitted? Next Steps

UDM Welcomes You!

Congratulations on becoming a new UDM student! The following steps are offered to help make your transition more enjoyable.

Step One: Submit Your Enrollment Deposit

Upon being accepted, submit your $200 enrollment deposit by May 1, 2014. This will secure your space in the freshman class. Some programs have limited capacity, and we can only guarantee space once the enrollment deposit is received. If you plan to live on campus, an additional $100.00 housing deposit is necessary to guarantee space in Shiple Hall, our freshman residence hall.

There are two ways to send your deposit:

  • Online using the UDM student portal called TitanConnect*. Your TitanConnect login information will be mailed to you.
  • Mail to:
    Office of Admissions
    University of Detroit Mercy
    4001 W. McNichols Road
    Detroit, MI 48221-3038

TitanConnect is your online source for conducting University business including viewing your financial aid package, registering for courses, and checking your class grades. You can access TitanConnect by going to http://tc.udmercy.edu.

Consistent with National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC) guidelines, enrollment deposits submitted prior to May 1, 2014 are fully refundable upon written request. Requests must be postmarked no later than May 1, 2014.

Step Two: Visit Campus

We encourage you to visit campus to learn about your chosen area of study, scholarships and financial aid, student life, and more!
We offer several different types of visits: Visit Days, Personal Visits, Overnight Experiences, and Class Shadows. To find out which is best for you, contact the Office of Admissions at 800-635-5020 or go to "visit the campus".

Step Three: Check Out Everything Happening On Campus

There’s lots of ways to check out what’s going on on campus. You can get news and event updates by following us on social media.

You can read what current students are saying about what’s going on around campus and in the classrooms on the UDM blog for new students at http://blogs.udmercy.edu/admissions. You’ll get next step tips to help you through the admissions process, including orientation! Don’t miss out on this important information.

Step Four: File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

We recommend every student file the FAFSA beginning January 1. By submitting the FAFSA you become eligible for grants, low interest rate student loans, and work-study. File online at http://www.fafsa.gov. Don’t forget to list UDM’s school code 002323.

Step Five: Look for Your Financial Aid Package

UDM financial aid packages become available during March. They will outline the different kinds of aid you are eligible for from the state and federal governments as well as from University of Detroit Mercy.

Your package will be available online through your TitanConnect account at http://tc.udmercy.edu. Be sure to keep your login information on-hand! Once you have reviewed your financial aid package, plan to contact your Admissions Counselor to discuss the details of your offer.

Step Six: Reserve Your Spot at Orientation

Orientation takes place during the summer. This is when all freshmen will take placement exams, choose classes for the fall, and meet new classmates. Details about orientation will be mailed during the winter months or shortly after your admission.

Step Seven: Request a Final High School Transcript

Send your final high school transcript to the Office of Admissions prior to the start of class this Fall. To continue as a student at UDM, and to receive financial aid, your final transcript must be on file at the University.

If you have questions, contact the Office of Admissions at 800-635-5020 or admissions@udmercy.edu.
