How We Help You Go Blue 

Once you factor in generous aid packages (two out of three first-year students receive financial aid), U-M is one of the most affordable public colleges in the nation. Our students represent a wide range of income levels — showing our commitment to making higher education accessible and affordable.

Support for Michigan Residents

Learn more about the specific scholarship opportunities available to eligible in-state students.


The Go Blue Guarantee is automatically awarded to Michigan residents who meet specific financial requirements. Qualified in-state students pursuing undergraduate study through the Ann Arbor campus can receive up to four years of tuition support.

This donor-funded initiative offers substantial financial support (up to full tuition) to students from Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Scholars also receive access to peer mentorship, workshops, and leadership development.

Michigan Alumni Scholarship

Students in select northern Michigan counties automatically receive a one-time $2,500 scholarship upon enrollment as a first-year student.

Support for Out-of-State Students

We encourage you to reach out directly to U-M's Central Financial Aid Office if you'd like to learn more about the cost of attendance and financial aid opportunities for out-of-state students.


Out-of-state students may be eligible for various scholarship opportunities. For example, Michigan Ross offers scholarships for out-of-state students that can reach up to $25,000. Please contact the Ross Financial Aid Office at [email protected] for additional information.

Check out U-M's Net Price Calculator to estimate your eligibility for financial aid and out-of-pocket expenses as a full-time student.

Students who meet certain need-based criteria may be eligible for tuition support  through a federal Pell Grant. In 2018-19, 23% of U-M in-state undergraduates received Pell Grants. Learn more about Pell Grants on the U-M grants web page.

December 15 - Suggested Filing Date
March 31 - Deadline

Financial aid comes in the form of grants and scholarships that are not repaid, loans that must be repaid, or federal work-study funding, which allows 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 to apply for financial aid by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and CSS Financial Aid Profile, these applications are used to consider the student for all need-based federal and institutional aid, such as the Go Blue Guarantee. Visit the University of Michigan Office of Financial Aid for more details and steps on how to apply.

Ross Scholarship Opportunities

All incoming BBA students are automatically considered for scholarships — there is no separate scholarship application.

Ross scholarship selections are based on criteria set by our donors. The average scholarship is around $7,000, with common award amounts ranging between $7,500 to $15,000. Many scholarships are need-based, so we highly encourage eligible students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), prior to the university’s suggested filing date of December 15 but no later than the deadline of March 31.

The Ross Financial Aid office posts scholarship opportunities throughout the year.
For additional information or questions regarding BBA scholarships, please contact the Ross Financial Aid Office at [email protected].
