The university is now offering a tuition refund plan for students who are unable to complete a term due to physical or psychological illness. The reimbursement program was first suggested to Dr. Robert Winfield, chief health officer and director of University Health Service by University Ombuds Robert Holmes as a direct result of his personal dealings with students and parents in these types of situations. The program is administered through a third party, independent of the UM Ombuds Office. (UM Record.)
