Welcome to EMU!

With an entering class of 2,600 freshmen, Eastern continues to remain one of the leaders among Michigan public universities in terms of entering freshman. This comes amid the trend of declining numbers of high school graduates in Michigan and Ohio.

The entering class is also the best prepared academically in recent Eastern Michigan history, with an ACT composite score of 22.25 and average high school GPA of 3.27. The class also includes a record number of freshmen enrolling in the EMU Honors College, with a final first-year contingent expected to number about 500 students.

"Eastern welcomes our new and returning students to our beautiful, historic and engaging campus," said Eastern President Susan Martin. "Our recent investment in key academic and student facilities, excellent faculty, the ability of our graduates to find good jobs in their field of study, and increased financial aid while setting the pace for tuition restraint in Michigan is being recognized by more students and their families. Students at Eastern appreciate the exceptional access to faculty, our small classes, and the many opportunities for research and community engagement."
