Michigan Assured Admission Pact (MAAP): Opening the Doors to Higher Education for Michiganders
In a groundbreaking development, Michigan's higher education landscape is undergoing a transformation to make college dreams a reality for students across the state. A coalition of 10 public universities recently unveiled the Michigan Assured Admission Pact (MAAP), an initiative designed to help open the doors to higher education for more Michigan students, simplifying the admissions process.
College admissions can be daunting, especially for first-generation students and those from under-resourced areas. MAAP simplifies the process by introducing a clear enrollment standard: a minimum 3.0 GPA.
The universities participating in MAAP for the Fall 2024 admission cycle are:
Central Michigan University
Eastern Michigan University
Ferris State University
Lake Superior State University
Northern Michigan University
Saginaw Valley State University
University of Michigan-Dearborn
University of Michigan-Flint
Wayne State University
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.
