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 $100.00 enrollment deposit to hold your space in the freshman class. In addition, your deposit will also secure your scholarship and (if living on campus) on-campus housing.
There are two ways to send your deposit:
- Online through your TitanConnect* account. Your TitanConnect login information will be mailed separately.
- Mail to:
Office of Admissions
University of Detroit Mercy,
4001 W. McNichols Road,

*TitanConnect is your online source for conducting most of your University business including viewing your financial aid package, registering for courses, and checking your class grades.
Step Two: Visit Campus
If you haven’t done so, we encourage you to visit our campus. During your visit you will have an opportunity to obtain information on your chosen area of study, scholarships & financial aid, student life, and more! We offer several types of visits: Visit Days, Individual Visits, Overnight Experiences, and Class Shadows.

Step Four: File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
We recommend every student file the FAFSA after January 1. By submitting the FAFSA you become eligible for grants, low interest rate student loans, and work-study. The quickest way to file is online. Don’t forget to list UDM’s school code 002323.
Step Five: Look for Your Financial Aid Package
If you file the FAFSA in January, your UDM financial aid package will be available at the end of March. It will outline the different kinds of aid you are eligible for from the state and federal governments as well as from the University of Detroit Mercy.Your package will be available online through your TitanConnect account. Be sure to keep your login information on-hand! Once you have reviewed the 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, including residence hall information, will be mailed during the winter months or shortly after your admission.
Step Seven: Request a Final High School Transcript
Once your final high school transcript becomes available, ensure that your school sends them 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 with the University.
If you have questions, contact your Admissions Counselor by phone at 800-635-5020 or by email.
