Applying for first-year student scholarships is easy at UM-Flint! You are automatically awarded scholarships at the time of admission based on your test scores and GPA. Our First-Year Merit Scholarships simplify the process of applying for and receiving awards, with:
First-Year Merit Scholarships are awarded automatically based on your cumulative high school grade point averages as well as ACT and/or SAT test scores at application (with the exception of the True Blue Merit Scholarship). If your grade point average and/or test scores increase to qualify you for a larger award, you will receive notification that your award has been increased. Students who receive scholarships must maintain a minimum grade point average and credit hours at UM-Flint to have their awards renewed.
Some first-year students, including students who have dual enrolled at UM-Flint or participated in the DEEP or Early College programs may be eligible for continuing student scholarships as first-year students. Students are encouraged to learn about the full range of scholarships available for all academic and economic backgrounds when they become a degree seeking student.
The ongoing pandemic has impacted the ability for some students to participate in SAT/ACT testing. In order to accommodate students who are potentially qualified for the First-Year Merit Scholarship but were unable to complete those tests, we have adjusted our standard procedures with the following changes:
|High School GPA||Award|
|3.5 – 3.69||$1,000|
|3.7 – 3.89||$2,000|
|3.9 – 4.0+||$3,000|
