Retired Persons Scholarship Program

The Retired Persons Scholarship Program (RPSP) offers retirees the opportunity to attend classes alongside traditionally-aged students. The integration of younger students and older students into the mainstream academic curriculum bridges the generational gap. A limited number of Retired Persons Scholarships for undergraduate and graduate study are available at UM-Dearborn.

Prospective students are required to:

  • have reached their 60th birthday prior to the semester of their first registration under this program.
  • have graduated from high school and have the potential to succeed at college-level studies.
  • be a "retired person"- to have no current career or employment.
