Schedule a visit to campus

There's no better way to learn about Detroit Mercy than to visit campus.  Check out udmercy.edu/visit for tour information.

Apply for financial aid

All new students are encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and list Detroit Mercy first on their form.  By completing the FAFSA at fafsa.gov, you will become eligible for financial aid at Detroit Mercy. 

Review your financial aid and accept your award on TitanConnect

TitanConnect is the Detroit Mercy student portal where you will manage your student accounts.  You'll recieve your TitanConnect login credentials via email after your admission.  For details related to accepting your financial aid, go to udmercy.edu/E-guide.

Accept your offer of admission

To accept your offer of admission, go to your admission portal and submit your $250 enrollment deposit by your reply deadline.  This will secure your space in the freshman class.  Some programs have limited capacity, and we can only gurantee space once the enrollment deposit is received.  If you plan to live on campus, an additional $100 housing deposit is necessary to guarantee space in Shiple, our freshman residence hall.
