Departmental Approval Process for Transferring Credits

For Currently Enrolled UM Students

  • If the class is listed on the LSA Transfer Credit Equivalency Website (e.g. COMPLIT 376), then no further steps are required. The course has been counted as Comparative Literature, and the level has been established. It can now be counted toward your major or minor.

  • If the class is listed on the Transfer Credit Equivalency Website as departmental credit  (e.g. "COMPLIT DEPT", "HISTORY DEPT", etc. ), make an appointment with the Comparative Literature Advisor for the Major or Minor, as appropriate.

Bring all the information about the course that you have available to this appointment. Especially important is the complete syllabus for the class that you wish to count toward your work in Comparative Literature.

The Advisor will use this information to determine

  • whether the subject matter of the transferred course is appropriate for the Major (or Minor),

  • the level at which the course was taught (100, 200, 300, 400), b),

  • and what departmental course (if any) the course corresponds to.

If as a result of this evaluation request, you are informed that the class transfers with COMPLIT departmental credit (e.g. "COMPLIT DEPT", "HISTORY DEPT", etc. ), make an appointment with the Comparative Literature Advisor for the major or the minor, as appropriate, to have the course evaluated.

For Prospective Transfer Students

If a class is not listed at all on the Transfer Credit Equivalency website, this means that no student has ever submitted it for evaluation. Submit the course to the Department of Comparative Literature for evaluation via complit.info@umich.edu. Please include as much information as you can about the course. A complete syllabus is especially helpful. The Advisor will use this information to determine

  • whether the subject matter of the transferred course is appropriate for the Major (or Minor),

  • the level at which the course was taught (100, 200, 300, 400), b),

  • and what departmental course (if any) the course corresponds to.

We will be in touch once an advisor has reviewed and evaluated the course.
