Enrolled at another college/university?

You can take classes at the University of Michigan-Dearborn as a guest student!

For All Important Dates This Semester:

Guest Program Highlights

  • Classes are primarily taught in-person, but a number of hybrid or online-only classes are also available. Search for Classes.
  • It's a great opportunity to earn credits to transfer back to your home college/university (please note: it is your responsibility to determine whether the course(s) taken at UM-Dearborn will transfer).
  • Guest students may enroll for a maximum of four semesters. A new application is required for each semester you wish to enroll. If you have previously taken classes at UM-Dearborn, the admission decision will also be based on your UM-Dearborn GPA.
  • After you have been admitted to the University, you will receive information about the registration process.
  • Guest Student Tuition & Fees.

To Apply:

  • Complete the Online Non-Degree Application
    • Select “Undergraduate Guest” if your home institution is a non-University of Michigan campus, or

    • Select “Undergraduate Guest/Consortium Agreement” if your home institution is UM-Ann Arbor or UM-Flint

Completed non-degree applications will be accepted until midnight the day prior to the start of classes each semester.

  • College Transcript
    • A posted cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better on your most recent (home institution) transcript is required to be admissible.

Please Note:

  • If there are prerequisites for the class(es) you wish to take, your transcript(s) will be used to verify completion of those requirements so that you may receive the necessary overrides prior to registration.
  • If prerequisite coursework necessary for your guest enrollment was taken anywhere other than your home institution, please submit those transcripts as well.

Please submit the application and transcript(s) via email to: umd-admissions@umich.edu.

Other University of Michigan Students (Ann Arbor or Flint campus)

Financial Considerations 

  • Guest students from UM-Ann Arbor or UM-Flint are eligible to be considered for federal loans and Pell Grant because of a consortium agreement with each campus. For information on completing the financial aid process as a guest student from one of these campuses, please visit the Guest Student: Consortium web page.

Financial Considerations for non-UM Students

  • Guest students are not considered regular degree-seeking students at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. They are not eligible to receive federal grants or loans and are not considered for UM-Dearborn assistance. As a guest student, special financial planning may be needed to meet educational expenses. For information on possible resources available, please visit the Guest Student: Non-Consortium web page.
