Paying for college should not stand in the way of your hopes and dreams, and it doesn’t have to. That’s why we’re committed to helping you make your education at University of Michigan-Flint a reality. Consider this—70 percent of University of Michigan-Flint students receive some form of financial assistance to help pay for their college degree here.
We offer numerous financial aid opportunities for newly admitted and continuing students--from grants and loans to scholarships and work-study programs. Many of these are based on financial need, while others (such as scholarships) are based on academic achievement, service learning, or community involvement. In fact, thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends of the University, over 130 scholarships are available to our students. You can see how the aid can really add up! If you’re committed to following your passion, we’ll work with you to find the assistance and make it happen.
