About Genesee Early College

Genesee Early College

Genesee Early College (GEC) is an intensive, state-of-the-art, five-year early college high school program. GEC, which is operated by the Genesee Intermediate School District, has been a fully integrated part of the University of Michigan-Flint community since 2007. Its specialized curriculum prepares students for success in university-level coursework and future careers in any field. GEC students get a head start on their four-year degree paths, allowing them to earn up to 60 free transferable college credits while earning their high school diploma. 

Genesee Early College adheres to the principles of the National Middle College Consortium. Its secondary instructors are all certified and highly qualified under the requirements of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act.

Students attend school on the campus of The University of Michigan-Flint, with high school classes held at the William S. White building. Upon demonstrating proficiency in specific areas (usually by grade 11), students enroll in college courses for college credit. Successful students will graduate at the end of their fifth year with their high school diploma as well as up to 60 transferable credits toward their college degree. No additional tuition is required for this program.

GEC serves the students and community of Genesee County, and is open to students from neighboring areas.
