All applicants to the RME Ms.Ed. program are automatically considered for a merit-based tuition scholarship which covers up to 30 credits of course work at the rate of 25% or 50%. At the rate of 2019-20 rate of $2,100 per credit, this scholarship could be worth up to $15,750 or $31,500. The number of tuition scholarships is limited every year and very competitive. If a student meets the requirement for admission to the program, RME faculty decides whether or not to award the student with a tuition scholarship based on student’s GPA, GRE scores, and personal achievement and awards.

The School of Education and Human Development will process scholarship monies at the rate above so as to match the number of credits that you enroll in each term. You will remain responsible for paying all remaining tuition, relevant student fees, health insurance, books and course supplies. Please note the conditions that govern this scholarship:

  • The School of Education and Human Development has a five-year limit on providing financial assistance to all graduate students. This tuition scholarship will expire five years after you have enrolled in your first course as a UM graduate student.
  • You must remain in good standing with a GPA at or above 3.0 and record that is largely free of incomplete course grades.
  • Tuition scholarships are limited to courses on your approved program of study. They may not be used for courses that do not appear on that program.
  • Tuition scholarships may not be used to retake courses under any conditions, including but not limited to courses for which you may recieve a permanent grade of Incomplete or a grade requiring a course retake.
  • You will be responsible for tuition for courses that take you beyond the above credit limits or that are after five years have passed since your first course. Specifically, you will need to pay tuition for all credits that exceed the amount of credits covered by this scholarship and that you may be required to enroll in so as to meet the Graduate School’s continuous enrollment requirements.
