Partner Universities have agreements specifically with UM to send and receive students.
There are over 50 UM partner universities for students to study at in a full-immersion setting. The 2 different program types are Partner Exchange, where students pay tuition to UM and room & board usually to the host institution, and Partner Direct, where students pay tuition, room, & board all to the host institution. Most UM scholarships and student loans (except work study) can apply. To study abroad you must have at least a Sophomore standing of 30 UM credits (you can apply as a Freshman as long as you are a Sophomore once you are abroad), and have a minimum GPA of 2.8 (3.0 for select universities).
Partner University Exchange: Students pay their regular UM tuition while paying for their room & board to the institution abroad in most cases. Most UM student loans and scholarships, except work study and the Cal Murphy Scholarship can be applied to this program type.
Partner University Direct: Students pay the tuition, room, & board costs of the host institution to them directly, rather than UM. Most student loans and some scholarships can be applied to this program type. Work study, tuition waivers, LAS Awards, Cal Murphy Scholarships, and WUE waivers cannot be applied to this program type. Consult the Financial Aid Office, Enrollment Services, and/or the awarding department of the scholarship for more details.
