Know Your Costs - the difference between taking 15 credits vs. 12 credits

Maximize your savings and save time by taking 15 credits per semester rather than 12 credits.  The chart below illustrates your savings per semester, per year, over 2 years and over 4 years just by taking 3 extra credits (1 extra class) each semester at UM-Dearborn.

Our discounted rate of $89.00 per credit hour begins at your 13th credit hour.  Take advantage of this savings- you could save up to $7,872 over four years!  That's like a built in scholarship.
