Law Quad at the University of Michigan

There are ninety-three colleges and universities in the U.S. state of Michigan that are listed under the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. These institutions include eight research universities, nineteen master's universities, and seventeen baccalaureate colleges, as well as thirty-one associates colleges. In addition, there are eighteen institutions classified as special-focus institutions, eleven labeled as baccalaureate/associate's colleges, and two tribal colleges which operate in the state. The University of Michigan system (which comprises three public universities) has been overseen by the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan since 1817.[1]

The University of Michigan–Ann Arbor (UM) is the flagship campus of the University of Michigan system. The oldest post-secondary institution in the state, it was founded in 1817, twenty years before the Michigan Territory achieved statehood.[2][3] East Lansing-based Michigan State University is the state's largest public institution in terms of enrollment, as it had 47,825 students as of early 2012. With an enrollment of 11,707 students, Davenport University of Grand Rapids is Michigan's largest private post-secondary institution, while Oak Park-based Yeshiva Gedolah of Greater Detroit is the state's smallest.

The state has five medical schools,[note 1] as well as five law schools[note 2] which are accredited by the American Bar Association.[4] The majority of Michigan's post-secondary institutions are accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA).[5] Most are accredited by multiple agencies, such as the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), and the National League for Nursing (NLNAC).
