Financial Aid

Financial aid comes in forms of grants and scholarships that are not repaid, loans that must be repaid, or federal Work-Study awards, which allow you to earn a paycheck while attending college. If you think you will need financial help to attend the University of Michigan, we encourage you apply for financial aid by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (each year) and CSS Financial Aid PROFILE (during your first year only) before March 31st.

The FAFSA and CSS Financial Aid PROFILE will be used to consider the student for all need-based federal and institutional aid, such as the Go Blue Guarantee. Financial aid is provided through the University of Michigan Office of Financial Aid, which offers many publications to help answer your questions. For questions regarding BBA financial aid, please contact the University of Michigan Central Financial Aid Office at or 734-763-6600.  

Ross Scholarships

All incoming BBA students are automatically considered for scholarships — there is no separate scholarship application. However, you can complete My Scholarship Profile on Wolverine Access. This does not guarantee that you qualify for specific scholarships, but it ensures that you will be considered.

Ross scholarship selections are based on criteria set by our donors and average around $5,000. Many scholarships are need-based, so we encourage U.S. citizens and permanent residents to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The Ross Financial Aid office posts scholarship opportunities throughout the year. Targeted email notifications will be sent to students when scholarship opportunities are available.

For additional information or questions regarding BBA scholarships, please contact the Ross Financial Aid Office at
