The Cost of College

The cost of a college education is on everyone’s minds these days, and there’s no denying it can be an expensive investment!  Michigan parents should know that our entire U-M community, from the Regents, to Student Life, to Student Government, is actively working to keep tuition increases in check, while still maintaining an outstanding educational experience for your student.
