Graduate Programs Advising

The Office of Graduate Programs provides general information about UM-Flint graduate programs and assists prospective students with the application process and basic program advising.  If you are interested in speaking with the Graduate Advisor, you may do so in a number of different ways:

  • General Office Hours: Monday-Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. (Tuesdays we are open until 6:30 p.m.)
  • Visit the Graduate Programs Office: Graduate advisor, Erin Strom, is available for advising on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 am - 8:00 pm. (5-8 p.m. by appointment only).
  • Participate in the Graduate Advisor Chat, which takes place Monday - Thursday (9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (7:30 p.m. on Thursdays))

All questions relating to the program of study and degree requirements should be directed to the assigned advisor for that program.  Visit our programs of study pages for additional contact information for each graduate program.
