The College of Business is pleased to announce that tuition and fees across all its programs will remain nearly unchanged in 2016-17.

Two components make up the total cost of tuition in most degree programs at the University of Michigan-Dearborn: the base tuition and an additional per-credit-hour charge that varies depending on the academic program. While each college has identified efficiencies to keep tuition costs as minimal as possible, COB was able to identify additional costs savings to pass along to students. COB has passed these savings along by decreasing the additional per-credit-hour charge for upper level undergraduate as well as graduate courses in Business.

The result for students is that 2016-17 tuition increases were held to just 0.9% for undergraduate in-state, 1.0% for graduate in-state, 0.6% for undergraduate out-of-state, and 0.5% for graduate out-of-state, calculated at 15 credit hours for undergraduate students and 12 credit hours for graduate students.

"We’ve made curricular and other improvements that allow us to operate much more efficiently and effectively, and we’re passing much of that cost savings back to our students," said COB dean Raju Balakrishnan. "At a time when most business schools are raising tuition, it is great to be able to say we have actually lowered a portion of the tuition we charge students."

The University of Michigan Board of Regents approved tuition and fees for programs for all three campuses on June 16.
