Michigan Branch (MBTA) | Apply
The application to Telluride House is designed to be challenging but not intimidating. It consists of several essays and an interview. (Telephone interviews are possible.)
Although the essays require at least as much thought and effort as many university admission applications, they do allow candidates to show what they have to offer in their own terms. The House has accepted members as much for their artistic portfolios and scientific research as for their essays and interviews.
Applicants must enroll as full-time University of Michigan students while in the House. We encourage you to contact our Recruitment Committee about House events you would like to attend.
Applications from current U-M students are considered in the autumn; applications from incoming freshmen and transfers are considered in the spring. All selected students join the House in the fall of the following academic year.
