Comeback to Dearborn

UM-Dearborn is here to help you get back on track to earn your U-M degree. 

Students stop pursuing their educational goals for a variety of reasons — demands of a family, work obligations or financial constraints. No matter the reason, we want you to come back and finish what you started. 

The new Dearborn Comeback program provides needed support to former UM-Dearborn Wolverines who are close to finishing their degree. 

The Criteria

You want to earn your U-M degree at UM-Dearborn — and we’ll support you on your path to graduation. 

Here’s what it takes to become a Dearborn Comeback student:

  • Your last enrolled semester as an undergraduate student at UM-Dearborn occurred before Fall 2020.
  • You have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.4 at UM-Dearborn
  • You have earned at least 90 credits total (30 of the 90 credits must have been earned at UM-Dearborn) 
  • You have not graduated from another four-year college or university since leaving UM-Dearborn
  • You can commit to finalizing your degree over the next three years. 

Get Started

Are you ready for your Dearborn Comeback?

After you contact us, a UM-Dearborn team will work with you on an academic plan that will help you achieve your degree at a speed that works for you. Whether you sign on to go part-time or full-time, you’ll get an individualized plan to graduation. 

The Dearborn Comeback program includes development of a financial plan to support your academic plan. In addition, as part of this program, we will identify Federal aid eligibility remaining (i.e. Pell grants and loans) and we are committing up to $5,000 in additional support for students in the program. This move gives you a financial incentive to join the program today and take advantage of this special opportunity.


Coming back to campus is a big decision.

If you’re still wondering if the Dearborn Comeback is right for you, consider your earning potential. According to statistics, the cost of dropping out of college can be measured in lost earnings — each year, people lose a combined $3.8 billion nationally in lost earnings.
