How Does It Work?
You do not have to apply specifically for the Go Blue Guarantee. The Go Blue Guarantee is automatically awarded to qualified Michigan residents who:
- apply to U-M,
- get admitted, and
- apply for financial aid by March 31.
It’s that simple.
U-M is the only public university in Michigan that covers 100% of demonstrated financial need of eligible Michigan residents. Below are examples of the typical financial aid packages offered to qualified Michigan families:
|Total Family Income||Percent of Applicants Who Qualify for Scholarship and Grant Aid||Average Scholarship and Grant Aid (Percent of Tuition)||Average Tuition after Scholarship and Grant Aid|
|$65 - $95K||97%||$15,309 (92%)||$1,387|
