Transfer Student Requirements
Our Office of Undergraduate Admissions considers students’ academic performance and achievements at all post-secondary schools attended. The university may also look at nonacademic factors such as leadership qualities, talents, conduct, and citizenship when making an admission decision.
To qualify for admission, transfer students must meet the following requirements:
- 2.0 minimum college GPA (with 24 or more college credits)
- High school GPA (with fewer than 24 college credits)
- Students who have earned an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from a regionally accredited institution may be admitted regardless of GPA
- Unofficial transcripts can be provided as a placeholder for application
- Official transcripts can be sent in electronically or by mail once available
Transfer students are required to complete at least 30 credits at UM-Flint in order to complete a bachelor’s degree from our campus. If a transfer student transfers to UM-Flint, then transfers elsewhere or takes a course as a guest student at another institution, they must complete the last 30 credits toward their degree on the UM-Flint campus. Students must also satisfy all requirements for the degree they are pursuing.
