Approximate billing dates for CGIS programs are:

  • Winter term: December 1
  •  Spring half-term: April 1
  •  Summer half-term: June 1
  •  Fall term: August 1

Payments are due within 30 days after fees have been posted to your account.

If a tuition waiver applies to your program, please note that the waiver is applied shortly after charges have posted, usually within 2 weeks. We cannot issue a waiver until the tuition has posted.


Whether a student withdraws themself or is withdrawn or dismissed from the program after having signed the Participation Agreement in MCompass, they are still responsible for all CGIS fees (even if the student withdraws or is dismissed prior to the beginning of the program). For programs where University of Michigan tuition is charged, students are responsible for paying UM tuition and are subject to the same UM policies for tuition payment and course withdrawal for on-campus courses.

A student is able to petition under extenuating circumstances by submitting a written request to their program advisor, explaining their reasons for requesting a refund. The petition will be reviewed to determine if any type of refund is appropriate.
