The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is excited to help you with your transfer admissions process:

  • Currently, you can submit unofficial transcripts as a placeholder in your application until official ones are received in our office.
  • You can send your official transcripts electronically or by mail.
  • If you have elected to receive pass/fail grades on your collegiate transcripts, we will award transfer credit for passing courses.

It is important for you to know that certain secondary admit programs at the University of Michigan-Flint will still require letter grades to admit you to their program.

Transferring to UM-Flint is easier than you may think. Use the admission steps below to help you complete and submit your application.

Next Steps

Step 1: Apply Online
Submit your online application as soon as possible to secure your spot. There’s no application fee, and prospective students generally receive a response within two weeks of receiving your required documents. To submit a paper application, download the printable version here. and return it to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions along with a nonrefundable $30 application fee.

Step 2: Submit Official Transcripts
We are currently allowing students to submit unofficial transcripts as placeholders in determining an admissions decision, until official transcripts have been received. As soon as possible, request all previous post-secondary schools you’ve attended to submit your transcripts to the UM-Flint Office of Undergraduate Admissions. High school transcripts are required for students who have earned fewer than 24 college credits. Submit Advancement Placement (AP) scores, if applicable, to receive course credit.

We can accept scores and transcripts as official in these ways:

  • Transcripts sent using an electronic service, such as Docufide, Parchment, National Clearinghouse, etc., through the institution’s website.
  • Official transcripts that are delivered either by mail or in person that are still in the institution’s original, sealed, unbroken envelope. Faxed and emailed transcripts are not considered official.
  • Transcripts sent by mail directly from the institution to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

Step 3: Scholarships
UM-Flint offers a wide range of Merit Scholarships for transfer students. We strongly encourage all applicants to apply for Merit Scholarships, regardless of academic or economic background. To apply for a Merit Scholarship, submit the following documents along with your application:

  • Personal essay – topics may include your reason for choosing a major, your intended career field, why you want to go to college, or obstacles you have overcome to pursue your education
  • Two letters of recommendation, if required by the specific scholarship you’re applying for

Submit these documents by July 1 to admissions.flint@umich.edu.

Step 4: Evaluate Your Credits
Use our simple online credit transfer evaluator to see which credits will transfer to UM-Flint. It’s a great tool for staying on track for on-time graduation. Again, please keep in mind, if you have elected to receive pass/fail grades on your collegiate transcripts, we will award transfer credit for passing courses.  It is important for you to know that certain secondary admit programs at UM-Flint will still require letter grades to admit you to their program.
