Copy of Valid Passport
International students (F-1 status) are required to have a current, official passport from their country of origin to enter the United States and to attend UM-Flint.
Proof of Financial Support
You’ll be asked to complete an affidavit showing proof of financial support. This document can be accessed through iService, and is used to determine whether you are eligible for admission to UM-Flint, and is required to secure an I-20 required for F-1 status. The affidavit provides satisfactory evidence that you have adequate funds to support your academic pursuits at UM-Flint.
Some countries issue only one original transcript, exam result or degree certificate. If this applies to you, request an attested document from the institution. Then, send a photocopy of the document (never the original) 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 International Admissions or you may deliver the unopened envelope to the office in person.
Please note that all documents submitted to UM-Flint become the property of UM-Flint and cannot be photocopied or returned.
