UM-Flint is a first choice for students who want to pursue their education at a new institution. Whether you have just received your Associate’s Degree, or if you’re simply looking for a change, UM-Flint is uniquely qualified to meet the needs of students who are making the move to a new university. You are considered a transfer student if you have taken college or university courses after you graduated from high school, or after you earned a GED.
At UM-Flint, transfer students must have a minimum 2.0 college GPA in 24 or more college credits. High School GPA is also considered for applicants with fewer than 24 college credits. The average UM-Flint undergraduate GPA was 3.2 in 2011.
Admission is based on all available academic data, including grades earned at previously attended post-secondary institutions, and the strength of academic achievements in 24 or more semester hours of transferable college credit. For students with fewer than 24 transferable credit hours, high school records and other credentials are considered. You will only receive transfer credit for courses taken at regionally accredited institutions in which you received a grade of “C” or better. The University may consider non-academic factors in the admission decision, including information it receives regarding your leadership qualities, exceptional talents, conduct, and citizenship.
It is a requirement that all transfer students must earn a minimum of 45 semester hours at the University of Michigan-Flint, including the last 30 hours. Students must also satisfy all requirements for the degree they are pursuing.
