Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12-15 hours of credit (depending on residency) on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.

For the UCC exchange, students are responsible for paying:
- Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
- UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
- Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the owner/manager of housing accommodations)
- Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Qualified students must first complete the online UM Study Abroad Application. Please note that upon submitting your application, a $100 application fee will be assessed to your UM Bursar Account.

Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. For more details, please refer to the Study Abroad Policies & Procedures page.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website
. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third-party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
