Housing and Dining estimate based upon average residential life cost for the campus population. All fee rates are set by the UM System Board of Curators in the summer, and are typically available by July 1 of each year for the upcoming fall semester.

The cost of attendance presented is a standardized estimate of various university charges and other educational expenses.  Amounts are subject to change at any time at the discretion of the governing board, provided no increases to tuition/fees are effective unless approved by the governing board at least 30 days prior to the beginning of the academic term to which the tuition and fees are applicable.  Any approved revision of tuition/fees is effective regardless of whether they have been paid prior to the effective date of the revision.

Cost of attendance will be prorated based on your enrollment status.  This will be evaluated at the end of the second week of class and adjusted accordingly.
