A brief description of notable policies or programs to make the institution accessible and affordable to low-income students:

Our Go Blue Guarantee covers the cost of full undergraduate tuition and mandatory university fees for up to four years of full-time undergraduate study on the Ann Arbor campus for Michigan residents who qualify for in-state tuition and have a family income of $65,000 or less, and with assets less than $50,000. In Fall 2020, 1,428 current students were eligible for GBG and collectively received $20.5 million in institutional and federal support for that term. As of Fall 2021, the Go Blue Guarantee will be extended to qualifying Michigan residents on the Dearborn and Flint Campuses.

If you don’t qualify for the Go Blue Guarantee, there are many other options you can use to help cover the cost of a U-M education. Approximately 71 percent of all in-state and 50% of nonresident U-M undergraduate students receive some form of financial aid. U-M is the only public university in Michigan to cover 100 percent of demonstrated financial need of in-state students.
Aid packages combine need- and merit-based grants and scholarships, loans, and work-study employment. In acknowledgment of real concern over the nation’s rising student loan debt, the University has worked hard to provide students with more and larger grants, which do not need to be repaid, and to reduce their reliance on loans.
