Tuition Assessment & Fee Regulation
The Board of Regents shall determine the level of tuition and fees and a schedule of such shall be published. All other student tuition and fees shall be fixed by the Campus Fee Committee. Tuition and fees are subject to the approval by the Regents of the University and are subject to change at any time.
Payment of Tuition and Fees
All tuition and fees are payable in accordance with regulations established by the University providing only that said regulations may not defer payment beyond the end of the term for which they are assessed.
Payment for tuition and fees may be made in full at the Student Accounts' Office after registration. The procedure for obtaining a refund is described in the section "Change of Fees and Refunds."
Graduate degree-seeking applicants must submit a $60 application fee. The application fee is nonrefundable and cannot be credited toward tuition or any other fees. When applying via the online application, the application fee can be paid by credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).
Graduate non-degree or guest applications do not require a fee.
Undergraduate applicants are not charged an application fee regardless of how they apply.
Students who have paid the appropriate application fee at another campus of the University will not be assessed a second fee.
Undergraduate students electing Graduate course(s) will be assessed at the undergraduate tuition rate while still pursuing their UG degree. However, any course premiums and lab fees will be based on the graduate courses (numbered 500 and above) (Effective Fall 2020)
Graduate students electing Undergraduate course(s) will be assessed at the Undergraduate Tuition rate for Undergraduate course(s). Undergraduate courses are numbered 499 and below. (Effective Fall 2006)
Please note: This tuition assessment is dependent on various factors and a change in tuition may not occur for some students.
Seniors who are within six hours of completing the requirements for graduation and who have been admitted to a UM-Dearborn graduate program may, with both undergraduate and graduate advisors' approval, register simultaneously in a UM-Dearborn undergraduate unit and in a graduate program. Tuition and fees will be assessed at the graduate program level for graduate courses and the undergraduate program level for undergraduate courses.
A student electing courses at UM-Dearborn and at another campus of the University, by means of a Guest Admission, will pay the appropriate tuition and fees at each campus. The only exception is that the student will not be assessed tuition and fees totaling more than a full program tuition and fees at whichever campus may have the higher full program tuition and fees.
A late registration fee of $25 will be assessed for anyone registering later than two weeks after the first day of classes for a full term and one week after the first day of classes for a half term. It should be noted that students are not ordinarily permitted to register after the first two weeks of a full term and the first week of a half term.
In exceptional cases, however, a student might be permitted to enroll even after the first two weeks (and be charged a late fee) if the student has obtained the written approval of the dean (or a designated representative) of the college. Late registrants not pursuing a degree (PDS/PE) must have the approval of the both the Program for Academic Support and the Registrar, as well as the approval of any instructors involved.
No exemption from the payment of fees shall be granted. Failure to fulfill financial obligations to the University may result in disciplinary action, including the withholding of degrees and transcripts.
The Registrar and the Provost for Academic Affairs are authorized to make adjustments in the application of the policy stated above when, in their judgment, unusual circumstances warrant such action. Circumstances that may warrant special consideration include the death or serious illness of the student. The student who wishes to have his/her case reviewed must petition and submit documentation to Office of the Registrar, via email, email@example.com. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that required documents are submitted.
Except in rare and unusual circumstances, petitions will not be accepted after the last day of classes for the term concerned.
