Transfer Students

Transfer to UM-Dearborn and graduate with the prestige of a Michigan degree.

More than half of incoming UM-Dearborn students are transfer students just like you. There are a number of factors that can prompt a student to seek out a new college or university. Whether seeking academic excellence at a more affordable rate, pursuing an institution that offers flexible class scheduling, or simply aiming to find a school that’s closer to home. You may even be seeking a change of pace and prefer a university that offers smaller class sizes. Each year, we help students continue their education no matter the circumstance. 

UM-Dearborn celebrates Transfer Students during National Transfer Student Week (October 18-22).

Did you know that 49% of UM-Dearborn’s undergraduate students are transfer students? We understand and appreciate the value that transfer students bring to our community, and we celebrate our current and future transfer Wolverines.
