Next Steps

Step 1: Apply Online

Submit your online application as soon as possible to secure your spot. It’s free to apply and the application takes only about ten minutes to complete. Most applicants will receive an admission within 1-2 weeks of applying and submitting an official high school transcript.

Step 2: Submit Official Transcripts

After applying, please request that your high school send UM-Flint an official copy of your transcript. We prefer to receive transcripts electronically. If your school can only send a paper transcript, it should be mailed to the following address: University of Michigan-Flint, Office of Admissions, 245 University Pavilion, 303 E. Kearsley St., Flint, MI 48502-1950.

Step 3: Review your Scholarship Options

The First-Year Merit Scholarship program offers a wide range of scholarship options for incoming students. Your application to the university is your scholarship application.

While SAT/ACT scores are not required for admission, we recommend that students who have taken either test submit their scores for full scholarship consideration. Scholarships are also available to students who do not submit test scores. We accept test scores that are sent by the testing agency or that are included on an official high school transcript.

There is no deadline to be considered for most First-Year Merit Scholarships. However, in order to be considered for our full-tuition scholarship, the True Blue Merit Scholarship, you must be admitted by March 1.

The Go Blue Guarantee is a full-tuition scholarship available to first-year students who:

  • Are eligible for in-state tuition
  • Are eligible to apply for financial aid
  • Have family incomes of $65,000 or less and assets below $50,000
  • Are pursuing their first bachelor’s degree
  • Are enrolled full-time
  • Have a cumulative high-school GPA of 3.5 or above

Income and assets are verified each academic year based on the FAFSA, and the guarantee requires students to apply for financial aid. First-year students are eligible for up to four years (8 semesters) and transfers are eligible for up to two years (4 semesters).  Continuing students’ semesters of eligibility will be determined based on the number of semesters already attended at UM-Flint.

Step 4: Visit Campus

We can’t wait to welcome you to our beautiful campus in the heart of downtown Flint! The Office of Admissions offers morning and afternoon campus tours most weekdays, as well as open houses and other specialized events. Be sure to check here for upcoming opportunities to visit.

Step 5: Applying for Housing

First-year students who choose to live on campus reside in the First Street Residence Hall, a modern building with apartment-style suites. Admitted students may submit their housing application and sign their housing contract online.
