UM-Flint Direct Admission Pathway

The University of Michigan-Flint’s Direct Admission Pathway program takes the stress out of the college admission process.

Through this initiative, UM-Flint works with area partner high schools to identify graduating seniors who meet the university’s academic admission criteria. Qualified students then receive an offer of admission without having to apply!

If it sounds easy, that’s because it is …

Here’s how it works:

  • Participating area high schools will share a list of graduating seniors meeting UM-Flint’s admission criteria each fall.
  • UM-Flint will then send admission letters to the qualified students. It’s that easy!
  • After receiving an admission letter, students interested in attending UM-Flint should complete our free online application at to verify their major, educational background, and contact information.
  • Interested students should also send UM-Flint a copy of their official high school transcript. 
  • While not required, it’s also strongly recommended that students send SAT or ACT scores for full scholarship consideration.

Participating school districts include Beecher, Bendle, Carman-Ainsworth, Davison, Fenton, Flint, Flushing, Grand Blanc, Kearsley, Lake Fenton, Linden, Montrose, Mt. Morris, Perry and Westwood Heights. The program is being extended to other districts within the coming year.
