Academic Credit for Cognitive Science Courses


Courses taken through CGIS will receive U-M in-residence credits. Courses taken from non-CGIS study abroad programs and/or external institutions must be transferable into the University of Michigan and approved by the Weinberg Institute in order to count coursework to the Cognitive Science major. Students may transfer up to 20 non-LSA credits, which may be used toward the graduation minimum of 120. Please reference the LSA Transfer Credit process. This guide from the International Center about Academic Credit from abroad is also a useful resource.

Prior to departure, students should select potential courses at their host institution that they believe have relevant CogSci content. One you have done this please check the list of “Previously Petitioned Study Abroad Courses” to see if it has already been approved. If not, you will need to submit a “Cognitive Science Study Abroad Course Petition”. If you need help with this course selection process, you may also make an appointment with a CogSci advisor.
