Required Reading is the reference and resource guide for students who are awarded financial aid at the University of Michigan. We call it Required Reading because it answers many questions students ask about their financial aid and provides information you must know in order to receive financial aid at U-M. You are expected to read it in order to understand the rights and responsibilities that go along with receiving your aid.
