An updated list of the School of Medicine eBill schedule and payment dates can be found here.
Students approved by the Financial Aid Office and those enrolled in an approved payment plan will be given a waiver at the time of registration. Students on scholarship are responsible at the time of registration for paying all assessments NOT covered by the scholarship. Students are responsible for monitoring and accepting scholarships and all financial aid packages
When completing registration for the academic term, students become financially responsible for payment of all applicable fees by the published due dates and must sign-off on a Promissory Note. Payments not received by the due dates are subject to collection, attorney, and litigation costs as well. Students should familiarize themselves with their electronic bill (eBill) including billing and payment dates.

The School of Medicine assesses tuition on a per-credit hour model. The following tuition cancellation guidelines will apply for students who drop courses. The deadlines are relative to the scheduled first session of the course, where "Week 1" refers to the first week of the course. Courses dropped by the deadlines will receive 100% tuition cancellation, and 0% tuition cancellation thereafter. For leaves of absence, the start date of the leave (and the date of last attendance) will determine the date of the course was dropped. For dismissals and withdrawals, the date of the dismissal (or withdrawal) determines the date the course was dropped.

|Exceptions: Full tuition cancellation will apply for dropped courses due to: 1) Year 1 students approved to change from a full course load to the Modified program; and 2) Year 3 students who enter Special Matriculation due to USMLE Step 1 failure. Dropped courses will not show on the transcript.|
The Registrar of the university is authorized to make adjustments in the application of tuition assessments when unusual circumstances warrant per university policies. Circumstances which may warrant special tuition cancellation are a complete withdrawal for medical reasons, or serious illness or death of an immediate family member. Tuition cannot be cancelled for insufficient funds, undocumented reasons, or reasons within the control of the student. Students who wish to have their requests reviewed must submit a written request to the Registrar, School of Medicine, 318 Mazurek Medical Education Commons, 320 E. Canfield, Detroit, MI 48201. Please provide a comprehensive statement of the facts and a complete description of the resolution you are requesting.
Students who are allowed to repeat coursework will be assessed $2,500 for each repeated course or the per-credit hour fee for courses less than $2,500. Year 3 students will have their assessment reduced if only required to repeat a portion of the clerkship. Students will be placed on financial aid probation and the eligibility for federal financial aid will be determined per the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy.
Students who are required to take extended preparation time before taking USMLE Step 1 will be enrolled in a Step 1 Preparation course for 1 credit hour per month for up to six months. Students delaying beyond 6 months will be placed on an administrative leave of absence.
