Not participating in the pact are the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor, Michigan State University, Grand Valley State University, Western Michigan University, and Michigan Technological University.

Encouraging In-State Enrollment

MAAP aims to attract local talent by setting a reasonable GPA threshold for assured admission. It showcases the quality of in-state institutions and fosters a sense of pride and belonging.

A Pioneering Initiative for Michigan

MAAP exemplifies Michigan's commitment to fostering a diverse, inclusive, and thriving higher education environment. It has the potential to change countless academic journeys, making college education more attainable for all.

The Michigan Assured Admission Pact (MAAP) signals a profound commitment to accessibility and support for Michigan's students on their path to higher education, showcasing the power of collaboration and innovation in creating opportunities for Michiganders.
