All proposals to satisfy program requirements using coursework from a program outside University of Michigan must be discussed with the Director of Graduate Studies in both Women's Studies and your department. Graduate credits may be transferred to Master's degree programs only. However, although course credits cannot be transferred to your PhD program, graduate work done elsewhere may be used to satisfy certain requirements but will not appear on the University transcript.
In English, you may transfer a maximum of 6 graduate credit hours for English courses taken at other institutions, not used as credit toward another degree. These credits may not satisfy 800-level seminar requirements unless approved by the Director of Graduate Studies in both Women's Studies and the English department. Transfer credits may not be used to satisfy the language requirement. Students may not transfer credit prior to posting their MA at Michigan. Paperwork to transfer credits should be submitted at the same time as the application for the Michigan MA is submitted.
