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

  • A specific number of earned credits is not required but competitive transfer candidates typically have two or more semesters of transferable graded college coursework at the time of application.
  • Students who apply with less than two semesters of graded college work completed at the time of application can still be considered as competitive candidates for transfer admission, however more emphasis will be placed upon the high school academic record as part of our evaluative process.

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.
