What UM-Dearborn Costs

Learn what expenses make up a budget in financial aid

The cost of attendance or budget in a financial aid award is made up of five expenses: average tuition and fees, average books and supplies, allowances for room and board, transportation and personal and miscellaneous.

One way that students can save money on tuition costs over their college careers is to add an additional class beyond 12 credits.  There is a substantial discount beginning at the 13th credit.  For example, the credit hour assessment for a 2018-2019 undergraduate is $480 for 1-12 credits and $105 for the 13th credit and beyond.  A 5th class could cost as little as $315.  Similar savings are available for graduate candidates.

Several of the components remain the same for every full-time student:

  • Books and supplies: $ 1,300
  • Transportation: $1,818
  • Personal and miscellaneous $1,400

Room and board are modest allowances for students who live at home or off-campus.

  • At Home $2,068
  • Off-Campus $8,272
