UM-Flint Transfer Scholarship
The University of Michigan-Flint Transfer Scholarship is available to transfer students with a cumulative transfer grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or above. The scholarship covers $2,500 per year for two academic years (Fall and Winter semesters only). Students are required to maintain full-time enrollment (at least 12 credit hours per semester) to receive the full scholarship amount. Students enrolled for 6-8 credit hours will receive $1,250 per year and students enrolled for 9-11 hours will receive $1,875 per year. This scholarship is automatically awarded to eligible students upon admission. This scholarship is only valid for students who are in their first semester at UM-Flint. Students who have been readmitted do not qualify as it is not their first semester at the university. Funding is limited.
The Go Blue Guarantee covers the full cost of undergraduate tuition and mandatory university fees to 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
- Transfer students must have a cumulative college GPA of 3.5 or above. Eligibility is determined based on a cumulative GPA across all colleges and universities previously attended.
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.
