The University of Michigan Office of Undergraduate Admissions handles transfers for the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts and the College of Engineering. For information about transferring to other U-M schools and colleges, please contact their Admissions representatives directly.


A successful U-M transfer student to the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA):

  • Is currently in good academic and social standing.
  • Has a distinguished record of college work, earning a cumulative GPA of at least a B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better.
  • Has earned sophomore (30+ credits) or junior standing (55-60 credits) with transferable credit earned at a community college or another two- or four-year college or university.

LSA's Transfer Student Center has additional information.  

A successful U-M transfer student to the College of Engineering will have completed prerequisite courses at their current school with a minimum GPA (which will vary by department and may change at any time).

Non-native speakers of English must provide proof of English proficiency.

NOTE: If you have attended any institution of higher education (on any basis, for any length of time) following graduation from high school, you will need to apply as a transfer applicant and submit official transcripts from all of the colleges that you have attended. If you are admitted to U-M, you can choose whether to use your previous colleges' credit to satisfy graduation requirements from the University of Michigan.
