Tuition and Fees are subject to change without notice by the Regents of the University.

Tuition rates are based on student’s residence classification, class standing, number of credit hours registered, and term. Other factors affect undergraduate tuition rates such as dual enrollment, non-degree status, and course loads over 18 credit hours per semester. 

A student may be charged a laboratory or other supplemental fee per class. Some programs may have particular fees associated with them, and students should contact their School or College to verify if their program carries additional fees. A Health Service Fee of $199 and an Infrastructure Maintenance Fee of $185 is included in all “Full Time” and “First Credit Hour” tuition amounts.

International Student Fee
This is a fee assessed to enrolled international students studying in F and J visa status each term of enrollment. The fee is $500 in a full term, $250 in the spring or summer half term.

Disenrollment Fees
Students who register and subsequently withdraw after the term begins will be charged a registration and disenrollment fee of $130.

Late Registration Fees
Beginning the first day of the term, a $50.00 late registration fee will be assessed for students who have not previously registered for that term. The late registration fee is increased by $25.00 at the beginning of each subsequent month.

Scholarships for Master's Students

School of Education scholarship opportunities

We select students for scholarships based on several factors, including the amount of funds available to award each year and the number of students deemed eligible to receive our support.

When making funding decisions, our scholarship review committee considers students’ demonstrated financial need as determined by the Office of Financial Aid, academic merit as determined by the program, and/or a combination of both.

The SOE endeavors to help sustain the academic excellence of the Michigan graduate community, and as such, considers students for scholarships who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity in the academic, professional, or civic realm through their work experience, volunteer engagement, or leadership of student or community organizations for our scholarship support. By commitment to diversity, we mean efforts to reduce social, educational or economic disparities among race, ethnicity or gender, or efforts to improve race relations in the U.S.

City Year Scholars

Eligible City Year community members include currently serving corps members, senior corps members, alumni who completed a term of AmeriCorps service, and staff members employed for at least two years. During the 2020-2021 application season, each eligible City Year community member applying receives an application fee waiver. Additionally, members who are admitted after January 01, 2021 will be eligible for minimum tuition scholarships of $5,000 for in-state residents and $10,000 for out-of-state residents (up to eight eligible members across the four graduate programs).

Rackham Merit Awards

In addition to the scholarships we offer our master’s students, we collaborate on funding packages with Rackham Graduate School. These scholarships, called Rackham Merit Awards (RMAs), assist eligible master’s students with support consisting of tuition, health and dental insurance, and a stipend. 

Students do not formally apply for the RMA or any of the scholarships offered by the SOE. You will automatically be considered.
