The University of Michigan will extend the Go Blue Guarantee — its landmark promise of four years of free tuition for qualifying Michigan residents — to the Dearborn and Flint campuses.
Beginning this fall, full-time, high-achieving in-state undergraduate students attending UM-Dearborn and UM-Flint will automatically qualify for the award if they have a family income of $65,000 or less and assets less than $50,000.
The Board of Regents voted June 17 to broaden the commitment to the two regional campuses during its meeting to determine the 2021-22 fiscal year budget. The expansion will not change the aid provided to students on the Ann Arbor campus.
“Our budget supports the families of our state and the academic excellence of our students by promising that outstanding students who work hard in their studies will be able to afford a Michigan education — on all three of our campuses,” President Mark Schlissel said. “I thank the many individuals in our community whose passion and commitment to affordability have helped us achieve this moment in the great history of the University of Michigan.”
The expansion to Dearborn and Flint will include budgetary support from the Ann Arbor campus for at least six years as the programs become established, and the guarantee will be a focus of fundraising in the years ahead.
