Working and Learning at UM

One of the great benefits of working at a university is the many opportunities employees have to continue to learn. UM's generous tuition waiver and flexible course schedules facilitate lifelong learning.

Tuition Waiver

The faculty/staff tuition waiver offers a rich opportunity to grow your skill set.  Permanent employees working at least .75 FTE may have the tuition for eligible UM courses waived and pay only fees to access courses. Please consult the Human Resource Services web page for more information on eligibility and required approvals. UM also offers a dependent tuition waiver to qualifying employees.

Summer Learning Opportunities

Summer is a great time to achieve your learning goals. With close to 900 courses offered in different 3, 6, and 12-week formats, consider taking a summer course. Get started on a new certificate, undergraduate program, master’s degree, or doctoral coursework. In many programs, you can take up to nine credits as a non-degree seeking student! Summer sessions are flexible and over 200 courses are offered online. Browse course offerings and pursue your educational goals starting this summer.
