Consumer Information for Students


The purpose of the Consumer Information for  Students is to provide students (prospective and current), their families, and the community about the University of Michigan-Dearborn.  A central location of information provides the answers to questions asked and to those that should be asked. We want our students to make an informed decision about college.  Most of all, the University of Michigan-Dearborn wants to be transparent in its policies, about its resources, and in our governance.


The College Scorecard was created by the U.S. Department of Education for all colleges and universities in the country.  The College Scorecard provides a snapshot view of each school and targets information that most students and their families want to know.


The College Navigator helps to provide statistical information about data categories that students want to know in making college decisions.
