  • Current UM tuition (and non-resident fees when applicable)
  • UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance, currently $1250)
  • Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host institution)
  • Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student and varies by student)
Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. 

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.

For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator.
