Remote Delivery Summer Discount:
We are pleased to offer students a Remote Delivery Summer Discount this summer that will partially offset your tuition and mandatory fees. This is our gift to you as you continue your studies with UM during this very challenging time. Classes this summer are primarily being taught online and remotely and our faculty and UM have been working hard to provide you an excellent economic value for your summer coursework and personalized attention that you would expect from being part of the Grizzly family.
