EMU collects 'Gender Identity' in addition to gender for reporting because the options mandated for reporting are not comprehensive of all genders. Read more here.

How would you like to be referred to in third person? All members of the EMU community strive to/are expected to use campus names and pronouns as indicated by each individual. (e.g. he/him/his, she/her/hers, they/them/theirs) - Read more about pronouns at EMU here.



Please enter your nine-digit Social Security Number with no extra characters. Social Security Number is not required at this time but recommended to expedite the financial aid process


Include country code for numbers outside USA and Canada. Your phone number is the primary way that EMU will communicate with you. Please provide the best number to reach you.



Citizenship
EMU collects citizenship status in order to best assist you in navigating the university's financial aid process. There is financial aid available at EMU for undocumented as well as international students and this information has no impact on your admissions decision. This information is used for aggregate reporting (all data combined, not individual student data).





Address(es)
Please add your permanent address below. If you have additional addresses to add, please click 'Add another address'.  







Race and Ethnicity Details
Information on gender and race is required for many federal programs and is critical in making policy decisions, particularly for civil rights. States use these data to meet legislative redistricting principles. Gender and race data also are used to promote equal employment opportunities and to assess gender and racial disparities in health and environmental risks. And finally, as an educational institution, EMU is concerned about disparities in academic performance. It is optional to identify and your response will in no way affect the admission decision.
