Admitted Transfer Students
Congratulations on your admission to the University of Michigan-Dearborn!
This page is designed to help guide you through your next steps as you prepare to enroll. After submitting your enrollment deposit, you should review the information below.
Please review the steps below to keep you on track to start your education journey at UM-Dearborn.
Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online using UM-Dearborn school code 0023236.
Students with a completed FAFSA on file will be sent a Cost and Aid Summary that will reflect UM-Dearborn’s value and how our Michigan degree offers a great return on educational investment.
You can review a sample Cost & Aid Summary to learn more.
Upon receipt of your Cost & Aid Summary you should accept your aid by following these steps.
When you were admitted, you should have received an email from email@example.com with instructions on setting up your uniqname and umich.edu email account. This email also included your 8-digit University of Michigan ID number (UMID). You must have both the UMID and uniqname to sign up for placement exams and orientation, and register for classes. After you have created your uniqname, please allow two business days for it to be added to our system. If you received your UMID and haven't set up your uniqname, you can obtain your uniqname now at the ITS website.
Degree Works is a web-based degree audit tool that you can use to view your transfer and exam credit (if applicable). It outlines the requirements of your expected degree and shows which requirements are met by your transfer credit and which requirements remain. Follow this link for more information and to access Degree Works.
Once available, please provide your final, official transcripts from all colleges/universities that you have attended. These transcripts must be sent to us directly from the institution to be considered official. Please note that failure to do so may result in a hold being placed on your student account that prevents registration for future terms.
My UM-Dearborn is a 24/7 self-service portal designed to get personalized tools and resources to support you on your path to graduation. You will be provided instructions and guidance on how to use the portal closer to the start of your first semester.
Now that you've been admitted, see what we are all about. You can take a tour with our student tour guides, learn more about financial aid from the comfort of your home during a virtual session or attend an Admitted Student Reception. Go to our visit page to find out more.
