University of Michigan School of Information


UMSI Graduate Guarantee

UMSI Graduate Guarantee, for the Master of Science in Information (MSI) or Master of Health Informatics (MHI)

Did you get the Go Blue Guarantee? Keep going!

Free graduate school tuition for current or previous recipients of U-M’s Go Blue Guarantee

The University of Michigan School of Information (UMSI) is now offering free tuition in two graduate school programs for full-time students who were awarded the U-M Go Blue Guarantee grant as undergraduates at the Ann Arbor, Dearborn or Flint campuses.

The UMSI Graduate Guarantee provides four semesters of tuition and fees in the School of Information’s Master of Science in Information (MSI) program or the Master of Health Informatics (MHI) program in Ann Arbor. This is a grant, not a loan, funded by the School of Information. 

How does it work?

You do not have to apply specifically for the UMSI Graduate Guarantee. 

You are automatically considered when you: 

1. Submit your application to the School of Information’s MSI or MHI program.

In the application's Financial Assistance Information section, be sure to check the box that indicates you received a Go Blue Guarantee grant. (Not sure whether you received the Go Blue Guarantee grant? Check your previous financial awards in Wolverine Access, under the Student Aid section.)

2. Get admitted to either of those UMSI programs.

3. Watch your email for confirmation of your award. 

UMSI is committed to keeping a world-class education affordable and accessible to those pursuing graduate study at UMSI. The UMSI Graduate Guarantee is the first of its kind offered by a U-M school or college. It’s the latest addition to a portfolio of substantial scholarships that students receive consideration for when applying to UMSI master’s programs.

Scholarship terms and conditions apply. Subject to availability of funds.

The priority application deadline for the Master of Science in Information and Master of Health Informatics programs is January 15, with a final deadline of May 1.

As of March 29, 2024: 

Due to an overwhelming response, UMSI Graduate Guarantee funding for Fall 2024 applicants has been exhausted at this time. However, we still encourage all eligible applicants to apply by the May 1 final deadline and indicate their Go Blue Guarantee status on their applications. As a reminder, applications to the MSI and MHI programs will be automatically reviewed for other UMSI scholarships. If additional UMSI Graduate Guarantee funding becomes available, awards may continue to be extended to applicants for Fall 2024 admission.
