From all of us at the University of Minnesota, congratulations on taking the next step towards your college future. We are grateful for your interest in the U of M. This Golden Gopher Application makes it easy for you to let us know who you are. Plus, you will notice:

  • No ACT/SAT score required
  • No essay
  • No letters of recommendation
  • Freshman applicants receive automatic consideration for admission, Honors, and scholarships.

As you work on your application and after you press submit, we will guide you through your next steps (such as the Self-Reported Academic Record for freshman applicants or official transcripts for transfer applicants).

Create a new account to get started. If you have already created an online application, log in below. Important: you can save your work prior to submitting this form. Once the form is submitted, freshman applicants can submit changes to the Academic Record section of their application to provide new test scores, courses, or grades.
