CoE First Year Students examine and adjust the blimp

Michigan Engineering welcomes transfer applicants from community colleges, two and four year colleges and universities. If you’ve attended a college or university after graduating from high school, you are considered a Transfer Student. (NOTE: Current U-M students are considered cross-campus students; however, students attending U-M Flint or U-M Dearborn are considered Transfer Students.)

Competitive applicants for transfer admission will have completed prerequisite courses at their current school with a minimum GPA. Students must have at least a 3.0 GPA to be considered for admission. Non-native speakers of English must provide proof of English proficiency.


Students wishing to transfer should complete a series of prerequisite courses. All courses should be taken for a letter grade and not pass/fail. A letter grade of a “C” or better is required. The prerequisite courses cannot be filled by placement exams administered at other institutions.
