One thought on “University of Michigan Open Courses

  1. Darrell Richards

    If I take and complete free on-line courses offered by UofM, will I then be recognized as a UofM Alumni? Not only reason but would be nice to know. I am 66yrs old, Born and raised in Michigan, Served in the US Navy Seabees in DaNang Vietnam and McMurdo Station, Antarctica. I have been looking strongly at the degree programs being offered using life experience as part of the qualifying criteria.
    Have a great weekend, God’s blessings to you and your family. ALso to all of the UofM staff, volunteers, and students. Go Blue. Been a fan since I was 8 years old. So that’s been awhile. Did work security at football games for a couple of years. Really lovedit.
    Please let me know and/or recommend any optional courses. Retire so income not too great but can manage ok.
