Tuition, Scholarships and Financial Aid

The University of Michigan-Dearborn has a long-standing commitment to making higher education affordable.

All College of Business courses are taught by faculty rather than teaching assistants.  As a result, we do not offer graduate assistantships to College of Business graduate students. 

We encourage our graduate students to explore each of the following funding resources:

Graduate Merit Scholarships

The Graduate Merit Scholarship recognizes several College of Business master's program applicants for their outstanding academic and professional accomplishments each semester. During their first term of enrollment, Graduate Merit Scholars receive a scholarship to cover the cost of one 3-credit program course at the in-state rate if they enroll in two or more 3-credit program courses. Applicants are considered automatically during the admission process.

Scholarships for Non-Michigan Residents

The Graduate Dearborn Scholarship significantly reduces the net cost of tuition for qualified graduate students.  The scholarship is open to non-Michigan residents who are enrolled in an in-person graduate degree program at the UM-Dearborn campus.

Scholarships for UM Employees

The University of Michigan-Dearborn provides a UM employee scholarship valued at 25% of tuition and fees for all U-M employees (Ann Arbor, Dearborn, Flint, and Health System). This scholarship is awarded in addition to the 75% of tuition and fees, provided with UM Tuition Support Policy, to equal 100% of tuition and fees, up to the number of credit hours allowed in your department each semester.

University-wide Scholarships

UM-Dearborn proudly offers thousands of scholarships each year to deserving students. Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, leadership, community service, financial need, special talents, or other criteria. Students are encouraged to actively research all scholarship opportunities which are applicable.

Students may be eligible to apply for additional graduate scholarships offered through the Office of Financial Aid.

Federal Financial Aid

United States citizens and permanent residents may apply for need-based loans and grants by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  For questions or additional information about financial aid programs, please visit the Office of Financial Aid.

Scholarships for Continuing College of Business Graduate Students

In addition to the financial aid and scholarships available to all university students, the following scholarships are available to current graduate students in the College of Business. The deadline to apply for these scholarships is March 1.
