Your financial aid is awarded based on the cost of attendance budget. You can borrow up to the Cost of Attendance budget; less other aid (such as scholarships and department aid) to cover the other budget expenses.

The University of Michigan bills all students for tuition and registration fees. Housing is billed if you live in University of Michigan housing. International students are billed for insurance (part of personal expenses) each month and an additional student service registration fee of $500 per semester.

Sometimes the standard estimated Cost of Attendance does not realistically meet a student’s actual expenses. Students that are in need of additional aid beyond the standard estimated Cost of Attendance budget, may want to seek a Budget Re-Evaluation.


Students who believe their residency status should be In State (Michigan Resident) and not Out of State (Non-Resident), will want to contact the Residency Classification Office. 5000 LS&A Building, South State St. Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1382 Phone: (734) 764-1400 500 Fax: (734) 615-2432 

Multidisciplinary Action Projects (MAP)

All Weekend MBA students (that started Spring/Summer 2020) will participate in MAP during their third semester (Winter 2021).

There is no cost to the student for participating in MAP. On behalf of the student, the participating MAP company sponsors will cover all MAP related expenses. To account for the cost of MAP covered by the company sponsors, and as per federal regulations, this support must be reported against the student's account. 


For all Weekend MBA students participating in MAP in Winter 2021, an estimated " Weekend MAP Ross Placeholder" of $1,078 will show on the financial aid award. This is to record the cost covered by the MAP company sponsors. All Weekend MBA Cost of Attendance budgets are also increased by $1,078 to accommodate this placeholder, and to not impact aid and loan borrowing eligibility. Therefore, the budget increase and the corresponding placeholder cancel each other out and create an equal balance of expenses and payments against the student's account. The MAP placeholder will not reduce, refund or disburse against the student's account / tuition cost. 

Please contact Ross Financial Aid if you have any questions regarding this process.
