Department of Political Science Transfer Credit Policy
The Department of Political Science allows students to take and transfer courses from other institutions to the University of Michigan for prerequisite and upper level major credit through the departmental approval process described below. Transfer courses must be approved by the Department if they are to count toward any Political Science prerequisite or major requirements. Transfer courses may be applied to the Political Science major, but at least twelve of the thirty upper level credits must be completed in residence. The Department does review coursework for potential transfer students to determine how coursework from another institution could be applied to the Political Science major.
Note: the two 400 level courses or one 400 level course and one Upper Level Writing Course required to complete the Political Science major must be completed in residence.
