Transfer Student Admission Requirements

Each of the four academic schools and colleges of the University has its own admission criteria:

Academic College 

Required GPA

College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters


College of Business 


College of Education, Health, and Human Services
Teacher Certification (elementary/secondary)
Health and non-certification education programs


College of Engineering and Computer Science


*GPA for math, science and engineering will also be recalculated; 2.75 is required for each.

Recalculated GPA

For transfer purposes, your GPA will be recalculated to include only courses which are potentially transferable. If you have received a grade of C- or lower in these classes, the credit will not transfer but the grade will be used in calculating your GPA for admission.  In addition to the calculated GPA, trend of grades will be considered in determining admissibility.

Transferable Credits

The maximum number of semester hours that are transferable are as follows:
From a community college: 62
From a four-year college: 75
From another UM-campus: 90
