University of Michigan Tuition Fees, Courses Offered & Admission Requirements.
The University of Michigan (UM, U-M, U of M, or UMich), often simply referred to as Michigan, is a public research university in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The University of Michigan is the state’s oldest university, founded in 1817 in Detroit, Michigan as the Catholepistemiad, or University of Michigania, 20 years before the Michigan Territory became a state. It moved to Ann Arbor in 1837 onto 40 acres (16 ha) of what is now known as Central Campus.
Since its establishment in Ann Arbor, the university campus has expanded to include more than 584 major buildings with a combined area of more than 34 million gross square feet (780 acres; 3.2 km2) spread out over a Central Campus and North Campus, two regional campuses in Flint and Dearborn, and a Center in Detroit. The University was a founding member of the Association of American Universities.
Considered one of the foremost research universities in the United States, Michigan is classified as one of 115 Doctoral Universities with Very High Research by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. As of 2017, 24 Nobel Prize winners, 6 Turing Award winners and 1 Fields Medalist have been affiliated with University of Michigan. Its comprehensive graduate program offers doctoral degrees in the humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) as well as professional degrees in architecture, business, medicine, law, pharmacy, nursing, social work, public health, and dentistry. Michigan’s body of living alumni comprises more than 540,000 people, one of the largest alumni bases of any university in the world.
Awards often reflect the university’s commitment to achieving a diverse student body. While a separate application is required for some scholarships, most require only your university admission application.

Tuition and fees are based on full-time enrollment, defined as 12-18 credit hours per term for undergraduate students. Those electing fewer than 12 credit hours are charged on a per-credit-hour basis. Those electing more than 18 hours must pay for additional credits.
For financial aid eligibility, full-time for graduate students is defined as 8 credit hours per term (however, for tuition rate purposes, full-time for graduate students is defined as 9 credit hours per term).
Undergraduate rates are for the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts; tuition and fees may be higher or lower, depending on a student’s program of study. Current full- and part-time tuition and fees for all U-M Schools and Colleges are available from the Office of the Registrar.
For residency questions, contact the Office of the Registrar. Visit Student Financial Services for information about your U-M account, eBill, installment payment plans, and payment dates.
Students with chronic health issues that require hospitalization may consider the university’s tuition insurance plan. Visit the Tuition Refund Plan page at the U-M Health Service website.
Housing & Meals
- Living on campus? The University Housing website provides detailed schedules of housing options, rates and meal plans. All residence hall room contracts require a meal plan for both Fall and Winter semesters. For budgets, we use the standard double-occupancy rate and Standard Meal Plan rate to determine eligibility (you would pay more for a single room and less for an economy triple and your rate will vary based on the selected meal plan).
- I plan to live off campus: The financial aid budget allows for off-campus rent, utility, and food costs up to the estimated cost for a standard double-occupancy room in a campus residence hall. Your costs will depend on housing arrangements and lifestyle, so carefully evaluate your options.
If you live off-campus, you pay your rent directly to a landlord instead of having housing costs deducted from your student account. Plan accordingly, since you will have four months’ rent to pay for the semester. If you live off-campus, you may save money by having roommates.
- Commuting from home? Students who commute will reduce room and board costs significantly. The allowance for commuting students is $4,814 for the academic year to acknowledge ongoing family household expenses (food, utilities, etc.) and transportation costs.
Books & Supplies
Costs vary by program, course load, and selected classes. Costs for students in the School of Art and Design, Architecture and Urban Planning, Dental Hygiene, and Business Administration are typically higher than estimates here.
Contact their office for exact figures. Reduce your costs by comparing prices, buying used books, renting books or using the university’s library and reserve book system.
Personal & Miscellaneous
This category includes other student expenses such as transportation, meals not covered under the standard meal contract, cell phone bills, clothes, personal hygiene, student insurance and entertainment. This is the most variable part of a student’s budget. The financial aid budget allows about $77 per week. Set an allowance, track expenses and stick to your budget.
University of Michigan Admissions Requirements
Unlike the UK, the US does not have a unified system for international student applications. This means that to study in Michigan you will need to send applications to each individual college you’d like to join. There is usually a small fee for each application you make, but you can make as many as you want.
Similarly, the deadlines, term dates and entry requirements for international student applications in Michigan will be different depending on the university, so make sure you research these on the university website. You can usually find this information under ‘Admissions’
