The University of Michigan’s Office of Services for Students with Disabilities is the central clearinghouse for disability information, referral, documentation approval and archiving, accommodation recommendations, and student advocacy. The Medical School’s coordinators of disability services are the class counselors in the Office of Medical Student Education. Students with disabilities who which to receive special accommodation must have:
- Declared their disability
- Provided documentation to their class counselor or the central campus office, well before accommodation is needed.
For further information regarding the Medical School’s FERPA policy, contact the Office of Medical Student Education at 734-763-4147.
The university has a tuition refund policy that stipulates the amount of tuition and fees that are refunded to a student who withdraws from all classes during a term. This policy is published by the Office of the Registrar and by the Medical School financial Aid Office on the web. Click here for the refund policy or contact the Medical School Financial Aid Office.
The federal government mandates that students who withdraw from all classes may only keep the financial aid (federal “Title IV” grant and loan assistance) they have “earned” up to the time of withdrawal. Funds that were disbursed in excess of the earned amount must be returned by the university and/or the students to the federal government.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is the term used to describe a student's successful completion of coursework toward a degree or certificate. All students receiving federal student financial aid must adhere to the Policies and Procedures for Medical Student Evaluation, Advancement and Graduation, approved by the University of Michigan Medical School Executive Committee yearly in order to maintain SAP.
The Medical School utilizes a periodic review and promotion system. Academic Review Boards convene monthly throughout the academic year to review the progress of students, take action as indicated and, when necessary, make recommendations to the Medical School Executive Committee. The Financial Aid Office is notified of pertinent actions by the Review Boards and Executive Committee through the Medical School Registrar’s Office.
The normal timeframe for completion of required course work for the M.D. degree is four academic years. Due to academic or personal difficulties, a student may require additional time. In such situations a schedule may be established for the student that departs from the norm that may require repeating a year of study. To be considered to be making Satisfactory Academic Progress for financial aid eligibility, the student must complete the pre-clinical phase of the curriculum by the end of the third year after initial enrollment and clinical course work within 3 years of beginning the clinical phase. The maximum time permitted for federal financial aid eligibility is six years.
A student may be granted a personal leave of absence for a variety of reasons. The period of leave for which the student has been approved may be excluded from the maximum time frame in which an individual student will be expected to complete the course work.
Students who do not meet SAP requirements will lose their eligibility for all federal financial aid administered by the Medical School Financial Aid Office. Although the School does not have an official financial aid probationary period, students may appeal loss of financial aid eligibility, in writing, to the Associate Dean of Medical Student Education. An appeal letter must show the existence of mitigating circumstances which should be taken into consideration in considering the appeal. The Associate Dean will consider each appeal on its merits and notify the Director of Financial Aid of the outcome of the appeal.
The University of Michigan Medical School Executive Committee reviews, updates and approves the Policies for Medical Student Evaluation, Advancement, and Graduation on a yearly basis and distributes it annually to all students, faculty and staff.
