The University of Michigan's minority admissions plummeted after the U.S. Supreme Court quashed its undergraduate admissions policy.
The Ann Arbor school has since adopted a new application process and says the number of black and Hispanic freshmen admitted for the fall term has increased from a year ago.
Nearly 6600 students have sent in enrollment deposits as of mid-May.
The total includes deposits from 473 blacks, up 20 percent from 394, and from 421 Hispanics, up 15 percent from a year earlier. Deposits from Native Americans declined more than seven percent. But that reflected a drop of only five students.
Final enrollment figures for 2005 will be available in October.
