Welcome to Michigan! You’ve got what it takes to succeed here. Out of a record number of applicants, we’ve selected you for admission to U-M based on your academic achievements, outstanding record of extracurricular activities, and the diversity you will bring to our campus. You’ve worked hard and accomplished much. Now, attend a university where you can accomplish so much more.
Let us help you make the most important decision about your future. No matter what kind of information and resources you need to make your transition into the university—whether you're a first-year freshman or a transfer student—you can locate it here.
Admitted students who have taken AP or IB exams may find additional credit information here.
Transfer your credits! To transfer non-U-M credits, you need to ask the registrar of your current/previous school to send official transcripts (with all course work posted) directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. If a final transcript is not available at the time of admission or when you are planning to transfer, you will receive a tentative evaluation of transferable credits prior to Orientation. A copy will also be given to the academic advisors to assist you during Orientation and registration. Evaluation of most professional credits is made during and shortly after registration week by the Schools and Colleges in which you are enrolling. General course equivalency information is available.
If you are currently an F-1 visa holder who has studied at another institution in the United States within the last 5 months, we require an additional form in addition to the FRS and supporting financial documentation. The Transfer-In Form is composed of two sections to be filled out by you and your current school's DSO (Designated School Official) or International Student Advisor (ISA). This form should be completed and submitted along with the FRS and your supporting financial documents.
Admitted international students have unique eligibility requirements. Please see the below links for specific guidelines:
- Information Booklet (or PDF for mobile devices or printing)
- Financial Resources Statement
- F-1 Transfer-In Form
- J-1 Transfer-In Form

The Summer Bridge Scholars Program is limited to a select group of students each year by invitation. It offers intensive academic preparation, highly individualized academic advising, and the personal attention of faculty in a nurturing environment. If you are a Summer Bridge Scholars Program student, you will have an excellent opportunity to strengthen your academic skills, develop a peer support network, and familiarize yourself with our campus and its resources.
Summer Bridge Scholars Program students are typically enrolled in an English course, a mathematics course, and a freshman seminar, and receive essential instruction about the U-M computing environment. You will receive 6-9 credits which become part of your official U-M transcript. You will also have an academic advisor who will serve as your permanent advisor providing guidance on course selection, career planning, and progress towards fulfilling degree requirements.
Summer Bridge Scholars program attendees attend orientation together at the start of the program. To receive financial aid, Summer Bridge Scholars students must file a summer term FAFSA and a fall/winter term FAFSA, and one CSS/Profile.
