The Ross School of Business, Dental School D.D.S. Program, Law School and Medical School have their own financial aid offices and/or representatives, and students should contact them directly for financial aid information. Undocumented graduate students should contact Rackham Graduate School or your specific school or college for information about admission and financial assistance.
