Credit where it’s due
Whether it’s from dual enrollment, dual degrees or coming to us from another institution, the credits you’ve earned might apply to your degree or program with us. Our admissions and aid resources for transfer credits can help you see how your existing credits might apply.
Prior to orientation, you will complete the online math and chemistry placement exams (chemistry exam will be waived for those with AP/IB/transfer credit for general chemistry). You will also have the option of taking a foreign language placement exam. In some cases, doing well on a U-M Placement Exam will exempt you from a course or a requirement. The Engineering Advising Center website has more information.
Advanced Placement guidelines
Make sure to discuss your AP exams with your advisor during orientation.
