Submit your admission documents, including your application for graduate admission (unless applying online) to the graduate program you’re applying to. Submit the following documents required for immigration through iService.

Official Transcripts
An official transcript, exam result or degree certificate is a verification of your academic record issued in the original language from the original issuing source (i.e., college, university, examining board or secondary school) is required for undergraduate admission. Official documents must arrive to University of Michigan-Flint in the original unopened envelope as issued by the originating institution, with an institutional stamp or signature on the closed envelope flap.

Attested Documents
We understand that many countries issue only one original transcript, exam result or degree certificate. Please do not submit your original copy to University of Michigan-Flint. Instead, request that the issuing institution attest a copy of the document. To request an attested document, send a photocopy (never the original) of the document to the institution that originally issued it. They will verify the photocopy against their records, place the institutional stamp or seal on the photocopy (thereby attesting to its accuracy), put the attested copy into an institutional envelope, and affix their stamp or seal over the envelope closure. The issuing institution can mail the attested copy directly to the Graduate Programs or you may deliver the unopened envelope to the office in person.

All documents submitted to University of Michigan-Flint become the property of University of Michigan-Flint and cannot be photocopied or returned.
