Scholarship Scholarship

Job / Advertisement Description

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:

  • No separate application to fill out—first-time students are automatically considered for Merit Scholarships when they apply to UM-Flint.
  • Immediate eligibility to receive scholarship funds for up to four years, for qualifying incoming freshmen who meet the minimum guidelines.
  • Instant information on which scholarship amount you qualify for—no waiting for an answer.

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.

Test Optional First-Year Merit Scholarships

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:

  • Students who don’t have a test score will receive a scholarship based on their incoming GPA. The cutoff for the required GPA is 3.5.
  • Students with a test score that does not meet the current model needed score, will receive the test optional range scholarship if their High School GPA is above 3.5 cutoff (shown below) even if their test scores are lower than the minimum SAT/ACT test score required in our original model.
