Entering the University of Michigan-Flint

Whether you are a new freshman or a transfer student, you must submit an application to the Admissions Office. They can assist you with gaining acceptance into the University, transferring classes, and familiarizing you with the campus.  The Student Success Center can assist you with placement tests and answer some of your general questions about university requirements. 


Once you have decided to major in communication, you should go through the Communication & Visual Arts Department (4116 WSW) for advising. Our general program advisor, Kim Laux (810.762.3411,, can assist you with understanding the program requirements, scheduling classes and addressing general advising matters. Request an advising appointment!

In addition to academic advising, you will also have the opportunity to work closely with one of our full-time faculty mentors on such matters as choosing electives, minors or cognates; career-related questions; graduate school or other “life decision” issues. Full-time faculty include: Traci Currie, Danielle De La Mare, Daniel Lair, Tony McGill, Marcus Paroske, Sarah Rosaen, Brian Schrader, Heather Seipke and Michelle Silva.
