UM-Dearborn Alumni Benefits

  • The Alumni Enrichment Scholarship Program is a second chance for alumni to enhance their undergraduate education and to provide additional exposure to a variety of subject areas. Upon acceptance, you will be eligible to elect up to 9 hours of undergraduate course work in a single four-month term in fields distinctly different from the field in which you earned your undergraduate or graduate degree (major or minor). Courses taken under alumni enrichment status appear as pass or fail on your transcript and only courses approved to use the pass/fail grading option may be elected.  Internship and cooperative education courses are not available to alumni enrichment students.  You are eligible to begin participation in the program one full term after graduation has been confirmed. Alumni participants are not eligible if currently enrolled in a degree or certificate program.

    The Alumni Enrichment student is responsible for the reduced per-credit hour assessment, the fees associated with registration, technology, and any course premiums and laboratory/course fees that may be assessed for specific courses.

    To apply, complete the Alumni Enrichment application, available online or by contacting 313-593-5100, and return it to the Admissions Office in 1145 University Center for approval. Once approved, you will be allowed to register for classes. For further information, contact Office of Admissions and Orientation at 313-593-5100.
