Cost & Financial Aid

Information in this section is approximate. Exact costs and detailed financial aid information will be provided in acceptance letters. There are two costs for attending NELP:

  1. The NELP program fee--which covers room & board, textbooks, and transportation to, from and during the program--will be between $2200 for NELP 2022.
  2. Spring half-term U-M tuition rates are set by the University, and will be set soon if they're not up already. For 2021, they were:

    In-state: 
    around $4,000

    Out-of-state: 
    around $13,000

Students who would qualify for U-M financial aid during a Spring half-term on campus will most likely qualify for a similar financial aid package when participating in NELP. NELP also offers some jobs for people with work-study awards. Financial aid applications for the Spring half-term will be available from the Office of Financial Aid around the first of February, and the deadline for these applications is usually in March. 

NELP alumni have provided some funds for separate NELP scholarships and loans. Details about applying for these smaller awards can be found in the NELP Application.
