Admitted Transfer Students


Congratulations! We are excited that you have chosen the College of LSA as the next step in your educational journey. Whether you are ready to pay your deposit or are still weighing your options, we want to make sure you feel comfortable with your decision to attend U-M. Rest assured that before you have to pay your deposit or register for any classes, you have ample opportunities to learn how your credits will transfer and how your transfer credits can be used for your LSA degree.

Making Your Decision: What Will You Know and Who Can You Ask?

Understanding your transfer credit

After you are admitted, Undergraduate Admissions will evaluate your credits from your previous institution and email you a Transfer Credit Summary Report that shows which of your credits will transfer and how transferable credits will be posted on your U-M transcript. For the general guidelines on how credits transfer and how transfer credits can be used for LSA degree requirements, follow the links to the left.

Have questions about your transfer credit or how you can pursue your plans at LSA? We offer a number of ways for you to get answers to any questions you might have about transferring to U-M. If you can make it to Ann Arbor, attend a Transfer Tuesday event where you can meet one-on-one with an LSA academic advisor to talk about your degree options and see how your transfer credits can be used toward LSA requirements. If you can’t make it to campus, please email the Transfer Student Program advisors. We are happy to set up a time to talk by phone or answer your questions by email.

Paid My Deposit. What Are My Next Steps?

Once you decide to enroll at U-M and pay your deposit you will receive information from the Office of New Student Programs inviting you to register for Orientation and providing details on the orientation program and steps you need to take to prepare for orientation. You will also receive an email from University Housing explaining your on-campus housing and dining options. You can also check out your options for off-campus housing.

Orientation and Beyond

Your academic advisor from the Newnan LSA Advising Center will be an important partner as you develop your academic and professional goals and pursue them through your class choices and experiences outside the classroom that define your liberal arts education.  You will begin working with your academic advisor at orientation and continue the relationship until you graduate. At orientation you will meet individually with your academic advisor to begin developing your plans and to select your courses for your first term. In preparation for your first meeting, your academic advisor will develop a preliminary degree audit checklist that shows how your transfer credit applies to the LSA degree requirements. Your advisor’s goal is to help you get the most out of your Michigan experience, so be ready to share all your plans, dreams, concerns, and goals during orientation. Your orientation ends with registration for your classes for your first term.
