Special One-Year Tuition Non-Resident Tuition Differential Grant for Newly Recruited Faculty and Staff Whose Dependents Are Classified as Non-Residents
Responsibility for determining a University of Michigan student’s eligibility to be classified as a resident for tuition purposes rests with the Residency Classification Office in the Office of the Registrar.
A dean or executive officer may offer a one-year non-resident tuition differential grant for a prospective or recently recruited faculty or staff member’s immediate family member who may be or has been determined to be ineligible for residency for the purposes of tuition. The grant offer is generally made as part of a recruitment effort (e.g., to recruit an exceptionally talented individual or to fill a position that is difficult to fill). The grant will be provided only under the terms described in Section II, Regulations and Definitions. The office of the dean or executive officer that approves the grant offer is responsible for funding the grant.
The grant is provided in accordance with the following regulations and definitions.
