Admissions Season 2022

Hello from Ann Arbor, Michigan! Since the application window for the Ford School’s MPP and MPA programs closed on January 15th, our team has been hard at work to verify the receipt of all required materials and prepare for the admissions process. 

At Ford, we are extremely fortunate to receive applications from numerous eminently qualified, talented individuals with a deep passion for public service. Our admissions team is dedicated to giving each application a holistic review to assemble diverse, dynamic cohorts for our graduate programs. 

We know that prospective students are eager to know the timeline for decisions, so in this post we wanted to give some insight into the calendar going forward. 

Throughout the month of February, applications will be reviewed by the committee to select individuals for admission. Prospective students can expect to receive admissions decisions by the end of the second week of March.

Following the release of decisions, the Ford School will host a Spring Preview for admitted students on Friday, April 8th, 2022. Newly-admitted Fordies will have the chance to learn about life at the Ford School and the incredible community found at Weill Hall. 

As always, keep a lookout for updates from the Ford School. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
