After you are admitted, Undergraduate Admissions will evaluate your credits and email you a Transfer Credit Student Summary Report that shows which of your credits will transfer and how transferable credits will be posted on your U-M transcript.

2 - Submit Courses for Evaluation

For most of your courses, you will not need to do anything after receiving your Transfer Credit Student Summary Report but there are a couple of different reasons that you might need to submit courses for evaluation. 

  • The Transfer Credit Student Summary Report might indicate that you need to submit material to have a course evaluated.
  • To see if courses that transfer as Departmental credit can be used for credit toward a major or for specific general degree requirements.
