The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) still has space for qualified students interested in applying now. This includes students who are waitlisted to another University of Minnesota college who have a genuine interest in this college.
If a student is interested in the majors offered in the CFANS, and would like to be considered for that college, please contact Casey Kuenn, in the Office of Admissions at for more information about CFANS. He can be reached at 612-625-3284 or 1-800-752-1000, or by email at email@example.com.
The average freshman applicant admitted to CFANS last year ranked in the top 16 percent of their high school class and scored a 27 on the ACT (1840 on the SAT).
Students can confirm their enrollment online at any time at http://www.uofminn.org/confirm. The $250 non-refundable enrollment confirmation fee can be submitted on this secure site. (Please note that any confirmation submitted after the May 1 deadline can only be accepted if space remains available in the U of M college to which the student was admitted. Confirmations that are not accepted will be returned.) Once students confirm their enrollment, they will receive information on orientation, registration, Welcome Week, and more. In addition students who have confirmed their enrollment will be able to schedule their summer orientation dates.
Note: Deferring the Confirmation Fee based on Financial Need
Students and families at this time of year who, because of financial need, request the ability to defer the $250 enrollment confirmation fee to their first semester tuition bill will have their requests considered on a case-by-case basis for low-income students or students for whom the $250 confirmation fee presents a financial hardship. In many cases, students who have received the ACT or NACAC application fee waiver would also qualify for confirmation fee deferral. Students may submit a request to defer the confirmation fee online at http://z.umn.edu/deferfee.
Senior student-athletes, who are planning on attending a NCAA school next year, are reminded to complete a Transcript Release Form in the Registrar’s Office to have your final transcript sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
