A Real Value. A Real Michigan Degree.

A recognized University of Michigan degree is more affordable than you might think, especially when you earn that degree at UM-Flint.

Year after year, the University of Michigan-Flint’s tuition ranks among the lowest of any public university in Michigan, making it one of the best values in higher education in the state—and across the nation.

We offer a wide selection of scholarships and financial aid to help make your Michigan degree even more affordable.

First-Year Merit Scholarships

Instantly available to motivated students with strong academic records, our First-Year Merit Scholarship program offers awards ranging up to $10,000 a year, with limited full-ride awards available.

Go Blue Guarantee

The Go Blue Guarantee is a full tuition scholarship available to first-time and transfer students who meet the following criteria:

  • Undergraduate in-state students who are admitted to and attend UM-Flint will automatically qualify for the award if they have a family income of $65,000 or less and assets below $50,000.
  • In addition to meeting the income and asset provisions, incoming first-time college students need a high school GPA of at least 3.5 to qualify for the Go Blue Guarantee and be eligible for up to eight semesters of free tuition.
  • Incoming transfer students need a transfer GPA of at least 3.5 and will be eligible for up to four semesters of free tuition.
