Application Checklist


Choose the academic program you’re interested in studying. 


Apply online using SIS (Student Information System). Since UM-Flint has rolling admission, we encourage you to apply at least six months prior to the start of the term you plan to attend.

DACA Students
Applicants who are currently in the DACA Status (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) will need to apply using the International (Non-U.S. Citizen) Freshman or Transfer application. Select "Non Citizen – Other or No Visa" for your citizenship status. List your citizenship and specify "Other Visa Type" for questions relating to visa status. Since deferred action does not provide an individual with lawful status please complete the rest of the fields.
