Admission & Transfer Information
The next step to earning a Michigan degree!
All student applicants must meet the criteria for admission to UM-Dearborn. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission and Orientation for information on the admission process.
Starting in Fall 2019, undergraduate students interested in Engineering or Computer and Information Science majors can be admitted into the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) in one of two ways, based on a student's overall academic and mathematics preparation: Direct admission into a CECS major, or admission into the Pre-Engineering Program.
Preparing to Transfer to UM-Dearborn
The College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) wants to help you make the most of your transfer into UM-Dearborn. The following information is important in preparing to apply as a transfer student.
A 2.75 overall GPA is required for transfer admission to the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Completion of Calculus II with a 'C' or higher grade is required for direct admission to an engineering or computer science major.
In general, students can transfer up to 62 credits from a community college, 75 credits from a four-year college, and 90 credits from UM-Ann Arbor or UM-Flint. Please see our transfer guides or contact an advisor for more information on transferrable courses from your college.
To establish a strong foundation, and to be well-prepared for study in engineering or computer science, it is recommended that students complete at minimum Calculus I, Calculus-based Chemistry and/or Physics, and an introductory engineering or CIS course before transferring to UM-Dearborn.
First time transfer students are automatically considered for select Transfer Scholarships through UM-Dearborn and the College of Engineering and Computer Science. No additional application is required for consideration.
After admission, all new transfer students are required to complete the Composition Placement Exam (regardless of previous composition courses completed) and the Mathematics Placement Exam (if Calculus 1 has not been completed at a previous school).
