Enrollment Deposit Waiver

All admitted freshmen and transfers are required to submit an enrollment deposit. A waiver, granted in cases of financial hardship, allows a student to complete Orientation and other enrollment steps without paying the deposit. 

You can request an enrollment deposit waiver by submitting the NACAC Waiver Form. Please note: when you complete the form, if you have difficulty getting input from a school official, or if you have sent your FAFSA to UM-Dearborn -- submit the form with the Authorized Official section blank. UM-Dearborn’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships is able to verify financial hardship. 

Please submit the completed form to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at umd-admissions@umich.edu.

If you need additional assistance, please call 313-593-5100 or email umd-admissions@umich.edu.
