Admitted students

Departure preparation

Students will be enrolled in an online pre-departure course on Canvas and will have several weeks to review and complete the course materials. The course includes modules on German language preparation, pre-departure preparations and travel logistics, health and safety, academics in Munich, professional development, identity and cultural considerations and travel/arrival to Munich.

German language prep

Between when you're admitted to the JYM program and the time you actually arrive in Munich (about five to six months) is a great opportunity to strengthen your German language skills.

The checklist

You'll receive an acceptance packet containing a formal letter of acceptance, payment information and a checklist. You must submit all the items listed on the checklist by the deadlines indicated.

The first item, the Acceptance Form, must be submitted by April 15 in order to confirm your place in the program. All other items are due by June 1.


Many of the required items are forms that must be filled out and signed. These are all fillable PDF forms that should be filled out on a computer. You'll need a standard office computer to fill out, sign and submit the forms. You cannot complete this with your phone.

Where are the forms?

We'll send you an email with a link to our GoogleDrive where you can access and download the forms. Check your email regularly from the time you receive your acceptance letter until the start of the program for important communications.

You'll need to create a signature so you can sign the forms using the sign feature in Adobe Reader.

Application for admission to the University of Munich (Antrag auf Zulassung zum Studium)

This form is most important as you're applying for admission to the LMU. Note that there are line-by-line instructions for this form included on our GoogleDrive (you may find it easier to print out the instructions first). Much of the information has already been filled in for you and many of the sections should be left blank, so follow the instructions carefully.

Official transcripts

Two official transcripts must accompany your application for admission to the LMU. You must order these to be sent to our Detroit office. Grades for the current semester must be posted on the transcripts. See the checklist for more details.

Other items

Note that there are other items on the checklist that you must submit as well as the forms and transcripts. All items are essential for your participation. Please check off each item as you submit it so you know you have done everything.
