University of Detroit Mercy

Detroit, Michigan

4-year, Regionally accredited

Affiliation: Roman Catholic

Degrees: Bachelor's, Master's, Doctorate, Postgraduate Certificate

This proud institution, founded by Jesuits, has become a highly regarded provider of professional degrees in dentistry and law, and is recognized nationally for its engineering, business and biology programs.  It uniquely offers students a presence in a reviving metropolis that is Detroit.

At first glance, University of Detroit Mercy’s tuition – list price about $50K for fulltime undergrads – is daunting.  But for those who dig a bit their reported (to the Education Department) net cost is actually around $23K, making this quality university a relative bargain.

Almost a quarter of Detroit Mercy’s students are 25 and older, and over one-third of their grad students attend part time.  Currently, only a few courses are available online, so anyone considering this fine institution should be ready for a campus experience.  And for those who question Detroit as a nice destination, the main campus is a pleasant oasis in the midst of a cultural rich but bad-rapped city.
