TOTAL ANNUAL COST FOR FAMILY

 

While we can provide general numbers and averages, these profiles reflecting the total costs for the 2016-2017 school year illustrate how every family situation is unique when considering financial aid. In addition to the aid noted in these profiles, many U-M students also receive scholarships from private donors or U-M schools and colleges which improves the quality of their aid package by reducing the need to borrow funds or to work.
