UM-Flint offers flexible admission requirements for students who bring a wide range of academic backgrounds and experiences to our campus. In addition to your GPA, we look at test scores, the high school you attended, and nonacademic qualities such as leadership and community engagement.
To qualify for admission, transfer students must meet the following requirements:
- Minimum 2.0 college GPA for students who have completed 24 or more college credits
- High school GPA will be considered for students with fewer than 24 college credits
Transfer students are required to complete at least 45 credits at UM-Flint in order to complete a bachelor’s degree from our campus.

Students must also satisfy all requirements for the degree they are pursuing.
