Support, Opportunities, Advocacy and Resources for Nontraditional Students

SOAR provides a wide range of Support, Opportunities, Advocacy, and Resources for adult learners with financial need pursuing their first bachelor’s degree. Whether returning to school change careers, advance in your current career, improve economic prospects, finish what you started long ago, or be one of the first in your family to earn a Michigan degree, SOAR can help you achieve your goals.

Qualifying students receive a scholarship during their first three semesters at UM-Dearborn and can attend part-time or full-time. Students also benefit from academic and personal support that continues beyond the first year until they graduate from the university.
