2017 Admitted Student Events


Please join us to celebrate your admission to Western Michigan University!


WMU's admitted student event is no ordinary open house. Whether you are ready to be a Bronco, or you are still evaluating your options, this is one event you won't want to miss! Get inside tips from WMU students, learn about your new home -- Kalamazoo, find out how to make your first year a success, and complete all the needed steps for enrollment by attending one of our Admitted Student Events. You'll also meet faculty from your chosen college, learn about the transition to college and have time to explore some of our student organizations. 

Here's a preview of what you can look forward to:

  • Bus tour highlighting WMU students' favorite places in Kalamazoo/Portage
  • Exploring WMU student organizations
  • Lunch in a WMU dining hall
  • Receiving your WMU Bronco ID Card
  • Student-led walking tours of campus and residence halls

We'll help you accomplish the following enrollment steps: 

  • Sign up for new student orientation
  • Register for housing and select your meal plan
  • Meet one-on-one with representatives from financial aid and file the FAFSA
  • Pay your admission deposit onsite

Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. in the Bernhard Center. Please bring your "Access Gold" letter so you have all of your WMU credentials to complete enrollment steps. View sample Access Gold letter here.
