The University of Michigan offers the Child Care Subsidy to students to assist with the cost of licensed child care of their young, dependent children. To align with the university's plans in which students will pursue their education through in-person, hybrid, and/or remote formats, the university temporarily changed eligibility criteria for the Child Care Subsidy beginning fall term 2020. 

During this temporary period, which will end at the close of the spring/summer 2022 term, child care expenses from any licensed child care provider will be eligible for reimbursement under the subsidy, regardless of the state, country, or agency of licensure. Eligibility will once again be limited to the State of Michigan beginning fall 2022. Other eligibility criteria for the Child Care Subsidy continue to be in effect.
