High School Visits and Events

Get to know UM-Dearborn with a visit to campus!  We host special events throughout the year for high school students and would love to welcome to you to our community.

Join us for a campus tour with current students and a presentation from an Admissions counselor at Go Blue Fridays.  This is a great opportunity to find out about our degree programs, financial aid, and scholarships.  

Meet one-on-one with a counselor to discuss your academic interests, review transcripts, and even receive a same-day admissions decision if your file is complete.  Schedule an appointment by calling 313-593-5100.
