Textbooks and materials
Students will always need to purchase their own textbooks. Students can find course materials and textbooks for courses at the University of Michigan-Flint Bookstore. Books come with ISBN numbers so that students can purchase the correct book edition. Please contact Anna Swartz (Email, 810-762-3160) to arrange pick up of your School of Management bag, padfolio, and name tent for class.
Blackboard is our online learning environment, where faculty present course content to students, including syllabus, announcemnts, documents, test, discussion boards, and more.

Parking Pass and UMID
During your first residency session, you will need to pick up your parking pass and University of Michigan ID.
Student vehicle registration must be completed online at my.umflint.edu. ITS distributes parking permits and/or validation stickers to students registered for classes in conjunction with the Mcard distribution at the beginning of the semester at designated locations in the University Pavilion and the William S.
