In-State Tuition on Basis of Service

Effective January 2014, the University of Michigan offers in-state tuition to veterans, reservists, and active duty service members. An application can be completed online. See the U-M Residency website for details on the process.

In-State Tuition for Select VA Educational Benefits (Choice Act)

The University of Michigan will charge in-state tuition to any individual using educational assistance under either Chapter 30 (Montgomery GI Bill® – Active Duty Program), Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation), Chapter 33 (Post-9/11 GI Bill®) of title 38, United States Code, and/or the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship while attending the University of Michigan (regardless of his/her formal state of residence).

If an individual exhausts their benefits under Chapter 30, Chapter 33 of title 38 of United States Code and/or the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship, they may be eligible for an extension of in-state tuition eligibility if the following conditions are met:

The individual has, within the prior 24-month period, used at least 12 months of the above benefits at the University of Michigan before the benefits were exhausted.

The individual is in an undergraduate degree program and is making progress toward degree completion at the time the benefits are exhausted.

In-state tuition at the University of Michigan will be extended for either a) a period of up to 24 months, or b) until the individual attains their first undergraduate degree, whichever occurs first.  Students must be continually enrolled for the duration of the extension of in-state tuition eligibility; a lapse in enrollment may result in termination of the extension.

The Veterans Certification Department requires a completed application for the in-state extension.

Non-degree students and students enrolled in graduate, professional, or postgraduate programs who have exhausted their benefits under either Chapter 30 (Montgomery GI Bill® – Active Duty Program),Chapter 33 (Post-9/11 GI Bill®) of title 38, United States Code, and/or the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship are NOT eligible for extension of in-state tuition eligibility under this policy.

Important note: If a student has not exhausted benefits and chooses not to access VA benefits for a term, the in-state tuition rate for Select VA Educational Benefits (Choice Act) does not apply.
