Tuition and Fees are subject to change without notice by the Regents of the University.
Due to COVID-19 or similar exigent circumstances, 2020-21 Tuition and Fees apply regardless of the method of instruction, including in the event instruction occurs remotely or in alternative formats for any part of the academic year. In the event non-mandatory fees, like class, lab or program fees, are substantially unconsumed or unutilized for the 2020-21 academic year due to COVID-19, decisions for refunding such fees will be made on a case by case basis within the School/College.
Tuition rates are based on:
- Student’s residence classification
- Class Standing
- Number of credit hours registered
Other Factors Affecting Tuition Rates
- Dual Enrollment On Two U-M Campuses
A student electing courses at the University of Michigan- Ann Arbor campus and at another campus of the university (UM-Flint or UM-Dearborn) will pay the appropriate fees at each campus. The only exception is that the student will not be assessed tuition totaling more than the full-time tuition at whichever campus has the higher full-time rate.
- Enrollment in More than One School/College
A student enrolled in more than one school/college, or pursuing more than one degree simultaneously, will pay the higher tuition rate for all credits elected.
- Non-Degree Students
Non-degree students will be assessed tuition based on their school of enrollment and residency status. Undergraduate non-degree students are assessed Upper Division tuition rates. Currently enrolled Michigan high school students are assessed at the Lower Division rate.
- Over Time
Undergraduate students taking more than 18 credit hours will be assessed the Part-Time Additional Hour rate (or fraction thereof) for any credit over 18. There are no additional fees for graduate or professional students enrolled beyond full time.
- Reduced Fees for Persons Sixty-five and Over
Persons sixty-five years of age or older are granted the privilege of enrolling in any University course or program for which they are properly qualified, on payment of a fee equal to 50 percent of the announced fee for such course or program exclusive of laboratory fees and other special charges, with the understanding that the University reserves the right to determine in each case the appropriateness of the election.
- Retroactive Changes Impacting Tuition
Retroactive changes to a student’s academic record may result in retroactive charges to a student’s tuition. This may include changes in enrollment, transfer course credit, test credit such as AP, cross-campus transfers, concentration or major declarations, late grade postings, or any other changes which would impact tuition.
- Undergraduate CTP: Credit Toward Program
Tuition is based not on years of attendance, but on the total number of credit hours a student earns either through testing, transfer credit from another institution, or credit earned here at the University of Michigan. Once a student attains 55 CTP or more, they are automatically assessed at the Upper Division tuition rate.
