The University of Michigan-Flint has a proud tradition of offering dual-enrollment programs to high school students in districts around the state and in 2012 the expansion of those programs led to a 50% increase over the previous year. UM-Flint faculty are now teaching college courses to high school seniors from throughout Livingston County. Credits earned are recorded on official UM-Flint transcripts as regular UM-Flint courses. Students completing the program earn a total of 12 credits, applicable to four-year degree programs at UM-Flint and potentially other institutions.
Agreements to provide similar programs have also been signed with Utica Schools. UM-Flint was one of the first to establish a full time high school on campus with the Genesee Early College and offer engineering programs in Lapper County.
