The University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) has extended the May 1 admissions deadline to June 1, 2024.

Admitted students will now have until June 1, 2024 to confirm their enrollment to UMR. The extension will allow students more time to receive financial aid offers, adjust any changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that may be required and make an informed decision that is best for the student and their family.

Delays with the launch of the newly refreshed FAFSA has prolonged financial aid packaging, impacting the traditional May 1 National College Decision Day date. 

“Making an informed decision on a student's academic future is essential. We want to ensure incoming students and their parents have the information they need to make the best decision. UMR has and always will be committed to student success, and we are hopeful this additional time will provide students and their parents with time to ask questions, seek advice and make an informed decision as they consider the University of Minnesota Rochester,” shares Terry Whittum, Interim Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management. 

Admitted students should direct questions to the Office of Admissions at or One Stop Student Services at
