Transfer Credit Policies & Procedures

The Department of Chemistry allows students to take and transfer courses from other institutions to UM for prerequisite and major credit through the departmental approval process.  Transfer courses may be applied toward your major.  Approval for credit of courses transferred from another institution toward your major requirements must go through the Department of Chemistry Transfer Credit Evaluation Process.   

Currently Enrolled UM Students

Check the Transfer Credit Equivalency (TCE) website to see if the class has already been approved for transfer.

  • If the class is listed on the TCE website as transferring as equivalent credit (i.e. Chem 130) then no additional steps are required.
  • If the class is listed on the TCE website as transferring as departmental credit (i.e. Chem Dept.) then the course has been reviewed and was not found to be an exact equivalent to any of our courses at UM.
  • If the class is not listed on the TCE website, then we have not reviewed the course.

 

In order to request evaluation or re-evaluation for any Chemistry course(s), the external institution's course instructor and/or department teaching or offering the course(s) will need to send: 

  • a detailed sample syllabus 
  • copies of exams & quizzes
  • laboratory experiments (when applicable) 

The material should be submitted to the Department of Chemistry for review at chemundergrad@umich.edu .
