Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.07 Average Rating
This university is expensive, especially if you're an out of state student, but the percentage of students who get jobs after graduation speaks for itself, especially in this economy.
Elizabeth from Rochester Hills, MI
Obviously this is an expensive university, but the facilities are great- you have opportunities to go to several libraries, ride the buses anywhere on campus, eat in any cafeteria you want with your meal plan, and the classrooms are all nice and clean. My professors have been great- they really care about their students and they are so intelligent. They all hold office hours and make it easy for you to get help outside of class. This university is well worth the money, I cannot imagine a better school! The reputation of graduating from the University of Michigan makes all your hard work worth it, and opens many doors.
Jessica from Farmington Hills, MI
Although the school is obviously expensive, it could not have nicer facilities. I do not feel like we, as students, are not getting what we paid for. The financial aid department is very helpful and understanding of any needs. If this is the school for you, they will make sure it is not an option because of money.
Gabriella from Sandy Spring, MD
Though tuition is pricey, you're getting all the connections you paid for. Our alumni fam will hook you up everywhere you go. You start to notice michigan more and more and then you realize we are literally in every city. The quality of education is superb and the professors really care about you and the wellbeing of the student body.
Julia from Ann Arbor, MI
As an out-of-state student, I have to admit that the tuition is ridiculously expensive. Everything in the area has prices jacked up. All-in-all, I still couldn't imagine going anywhere else, but I wish they offered more merit scholarships.
Todd from Williamsville, NY
I loved every minute and would do it again in a second. The price is totally worth it.
Lisa from Kalamazoo, MI
U of M can be extremely affordable, as long as you are a resident of Michigan. Since it's technically a public university, U of M can afford to offer low tuition to most Michigan residents, as long as they can prove they haven residents for at least three consecutive years.
For those coming from outside, the academics that U has to offer, plus the many opportunities that come from obtaining a degree from Michigan, its definitely worth the tuition costs, and even for non-residents, U of M's cost is still somewhat low compared to other great schools in Michigan.
Victor from Monroe, MI
There is a lot offered, but it never quite escapes the sense of an institution. You can't really ignore the grand legacy that fuels the school, making you feel more like a pawn for revenue and perpetuating the standard, than a student...
That said, Its incredible to see the sheer amount of opportunity available to you thanks to the amazing resources presented at the school. It really is a powerhouse for fostering innovation- only if you really push for it, though.

A Girl from Florida
Michigan is expensive, whether you are in state or out-of-state. I pay out-of-state tuition, which makes it harder because it's over 40k. However, this university gives thousands of students scholarships to be able to attend and not worry about tuition rates. They are very generous with this and outside scholarships can also help. Advisers also help students scope out possible scholarships and internships that may apply for them. It is worth it; once you leave this university, you will see the endless opportunities. This university is one of the best in the world, imagine being an alumni from here!
Catherine from NY
Michigan is definitely expensive. Although it is worth it to me, and I am in state, you have to be sure that this school is where you want to be. As far as public schools go, Michigan is one of the most expensive.
