The BENEFITS of being a UDM alumnus

UDM offers a variety of resources designed to assist alumni. To order an Alumni Association card, or for more details about any of the services listed below, visit the Online Community or send an email to udmgrad@udmercy.edu.

Audit a class

Alumni may audit classes at or below the level of the degree awarded to them by the University (bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate). Registration and course fees apply, but the tuition is waived. No course credit is awarded.

Send your kids to UDM—get an alumni scholarship

Dependent children of alumni are eligible for an alumni scholarship of $1,000 per year, for a maximum of $4,000 over four years, when the student is enrolled full time in an undergraduate program at the University. To activate the scholarship, alumni should advise an admissions counselor at 313-993-1245.

Come back for a class reunion

In May of each year, the University sponsors a Golden Jubilee reunion for the 50th anniversary class and a Golden Grads reunion for alumni graduating prior to the 5oth anniversary. Held in conjunction with the McNichols Commencement, reunion attendees and their guests are invited to mass and the President’s Brunch, after which, the 50-year class processes to Calihan Hall for the Commencement ceremonies. Alumni Relations will also assist with on-campus arrangements for other class years. If you want to organize a reunion or need more information, send an email to udmgrad@udmercy.edu.
