Get a Head Start. And Be College-Ready.
The University of Michigan-Flint is a leader in dual enrollment programs for high school students in Michigan. Dual Enrollment programs at UM-Flint get you ready for college coursework, help you transition to college life, and build your academic skills and confidence. As part of a Dual Enrollment program, you’ll have the opportunity to take college courses taught by dedicated UM-Flint faculty, while you’re still in high school. It’s a great way to get a head start on your educational goals.
If you’re a high school student who plans to attend the university, find out if your school offers a Dual Enrollment program with UM-Flint.
UM-Flint offers four pathways for high schools.
Standard Dual Enrollment
Standard dual enrollment is an excellent opportunity for students from local schools to expand their high school experience with more challenging, college-level courses. Outstanding high school students (with GPAs of 3.2 or higher) may enroll in UM-Flint for part-time study while finishing their high school graduation requirements.
Next steps for standard dual enrollment are:
- Check with your high school counselor to see if your school participates in the program, and whether you’re eligible for tuition reimbursement through your high school (not required to participate).
- Work with your counselor to plan the right college courses for you.
- Complete the application, indicating “standard dual enrollment” as your option and submit the application to your high school counselor along with your official transcripts.
- The Office of Undergraduate Admission will notify you if you have been accepted.
- If you register for Math 111 or English 111, contact the Student Success Center to schedule an appointment.
- Your student ID and parking pass will be issued to you the first week of classes.
- After your first semester, your grades will be sent to your high school and will become part of your college record.
- Complete an application for each semester you plan to participate in dual enrollment.
- Apply to UM-Flint as a first-time student during your senior year of high school.
