Please also sign up on our interest list to get regular updates about upcoming events and application deadlines.
Attend an information session
If you are interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree at the School of Information, please sign up to attend one of our information sessions. These sessions cover a variety of topics, including the overall Bachelor of Science in Information (BSI) program and the admissions process. We provide information sessions for current University of Michigan cross-campus transfers and students interested in transferring from other institutions, including community colleges. For additional information regarding the program specifically, email [email protected].
For current University of Michigan students:
Before applying, we recommend all students attend a BSI information session. Sessions are hosted on different days and at different times to accommodate the most students possible. A student only needs to attend ONE information session.
Please join our interest list to receive notices and reminders for upcoming information sessions.
