Transfer Credits

Current U-M students and incoming transfer students can check course equivalencies by using the transfer credit equivalency search page. Transfer credit may be posted as an exact equivalent to a U-M course, as departmental credit, or interdepartmental credit. Please note this search page is to be used as a general guideline, all transfer credits intended for Economics course credit will still need to be evaluated by one of our faculty advisors. Please note that students must take a total of 12 credits in residence including 401, 402, and one 400-level class with 401 or 402 as a prerequisite. See below for more details.
