Academic Advising at UM-Flint is based on a shared model that involves professional and faculty advisors.

You should meet with your advisor(s) as often as you need to, at least once per semester and whenever anything changes in your plans.

The Writing Center assists in making better writers and better products. You can come in for assistance with papers for any subject and at any stage of writing: getting started, fine tuning topics, developing ideas or revising, finishing papers, and working on MLA & APA formats as well as other citation styles.
