The Non-Resident Tuition Scholarship is an automatic process where admitted students will be reviewed automatically for this award shortly after the admission decision based on criteria of academic excellence. If you are a new incoming admit and qualify for the scholarship, you will receive an email from financial aid with instructions on how to accept the scholarship. Continuing students will have their scholarship automatically renewed if they continue to meet all terms and conditions, including a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 UM-Flint.
