Transfer Credit

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences allows students to take and transfer courses from other institutions to UM for prerequisite and major credit through the departmental approval process (see below).  Transfer courses may be applied toward your major, but at least 15 of your total credits for the Earth and Environmental Sciences major (minimum 30) must be from EARTH courses completed in residence at UM.  Approval for credit of courses transferred from another institution toward the Earth and Environmental Sciences major requirements must go through the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences Transfer Credit Evaluation Process:

 

Transfer Credit Evaluation Process for 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 then no additional steps are required.

● If the class is listed on the TCE website as transferring as departmental credit make an appointment with Prof. Greg Dick, Associate Chair for Curriculum, to have the course evaluated.

● If the class is not listed on the TCE website, submit an evaluation request using the UM Transfer Credit Equivalency Request Form.  If you are informed that the class transfers as departmental credit, make an appointment with Prof. Greg Dick, Associate Chair for Curriculum, to have the course evaluated.

Transfer Credit Evaluation Process for Prospective Transfer Students

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

● If a class is not listed at all on the TCE this means that no student has ever submitted it for evaluation.

    ○ Submit the course to Prof. Greg Dick, Associate Chair for Curriculum in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (gdick@umich.edu)
