Transfer Students

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.

Additional information for LSA transfer students can be found here

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.

Transfer Tuesdays

Students interested in learning more about transferring to the university are invited to register for Transfer Tuesdays (held monthly). Transfer Tuesdays provide opportunities to learn about financial aid, credit transfers, and admissions requirements.

Students are encouraged to bring a copy of their transcripts to discuss with admissions counselors and credit evaluators. Students will participate in a transfer information session, Central Campus Walking Tour, and meet one-on-one with an academic advisor. To register for a Transfer Tuesday, please go here
