Michigan's long-standing commitment to making higher education accessible and affordable is rooted in our mission as a public university that provides an "uncommon education for the common person."

We encourage you to explore all of the available aid options at U-M.

The actual cost of attendance may be less than you expect after you factor in funding awarded through grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study programs. Our admissions and financial aid counselors are available to answer your questions and get you started on your journey to become a Wolverine.

International students on temporary visas are not eligible for financial aid, and are expected to pay the full cost of attendance.
