If you are receiving financial aid for the Summer Half Term, the total amount will automatically be credited to your account to pay for tuition, room and board. Any amount in excess of that sum will be given to you to purchase books, supplies and for personal expenses.

Books and school supplies typically cost $175.00 to $250.00. Make sure you account for the purchase of books when planning your personal expenses.

Also, bring enough money to cover personal expenses such as laundry, snacks, breakfast, weekend meals, recreation and miscellaneous personal and school-related supplies.

It is recommended that you open an account at a local bank in Ann Arbor.
