We provide immigration and personal support along with assistance navigating U.S. laws, culture, and the educational system. We also provide many campus and community events to introduce you to U.S. culture including excursions to Michigan landmarks like Mackinac Island and Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Additionally, our International Student Ambassadors are all current international students who are here to introduce you to the Flint community and to help you acclimate to your new surroundings through events, one-on-one peer advising, and assistance with university services.

Intensive English Language Program

The program consists of 6 levels, and is based on a 14-week semester schedule. Full time ELP students receive 22 hours per week of English language and American culture instruction. 

Our small class sizes average 5-20 students, providing a learning atmosphere that encourages interaction and student input. Conditional admission to the University of Michigan-Flint is possible for qualified candidates. Completion of the ELP counts towards the English language proficiency requirement at the UM-Flint.

Housing Options

Located in the heart of the historic automotive city Flint, Michigan, on or near-campus housing provides students the opportunity to explore the community with the convenience of being within walking distance of campus and the downtown area. While some students choose off-campus housing options in the surrounding Flint area, there are two housing options located on the University campus. Both options include free internet, utilities, and access to all campus resources.

Live on-campus in the First Street Residence Hall:

A great choice for international students with the new Flint Farmer’s Market right next door, First Street is a suite style dormitory living arrangement with options for single or double rooms. Each room has a shared common area (living room), kitchenette, and two bathrooms as well as access to the community room and large kitchen in the building. Meal plans come included and scholarships are available for international students.

Live “off-campus” in the Riverfront Residence Hall:

Riverfront Residence Hall is considered off-campus housing only because it is part of the Flint College Collaborative, providing suite style housing to students from area institutions. This option is optimal for students pursuing Business, with the majority of classes held on the 2nd floor of the building, giving students the residential college experience. Meal plans are optional.

Student Life

With more than 100 student organizations to choose from, the University of Michigan-Flint has an organization for everyone. There are several cultural organizations that offer many opportunities to learn about different regions. They put on events like Diwali Night, Chinese New Year, International Education Week and many more. We encourage our students to get involved and make UM-Flint their own!
