STEP 1: APPLY ONLINE

Submit your online application as soon as possible to secure your spot. There’s no fee, and you should receive a response within two to four weeks of receiving your documents.

To submit a paper application, download the printable version here. Complete and mail/fax the application to:

Office of Undergraduate Admissions
University of Michigan-Flint
303 E Kearsley Street
245 University Pavilion
Flint, MI 48502-1950

Include payment for the $30 nonrefundable application fee with your paper application.

STEP 2: SUBMIT OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS

As soon as possible, ask all previous post-secondary schools you’ve attended to submit your official transcripts to the UM-Flint Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 

Official 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.

STEP 3: SUBMIT ALL DOCUMENTS

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@umflint.edu.  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 address below).
