Guest Student Admission

The University of Michigan-Dearborn welcomes applications from qualified guest students.

Students currently enrolled in a graduate program at another university (guest students), as well as students who have already earned a graduate degree (non-candidate-for-degree students), may request permission to enroll in College of Business graduate courses as guest students.

Also, the University of Michigan-Dearborn participates in the Michigan Intercollegiate Graduate Studies (MIGS) program. Students in good standing at one institution may take advantage of course and research opportunities offered at another institution, provided that such opportunities are not available on the home campus. If your current institution participates in MIGS and the courses you are interested in taking are not available at your home institution, you should consider applying through the MIGS option.

All forms of guest, non-candidate-for-degree, and MIGS registration are allowed on a space-available basis only, usually within the first few days after each semester's courses begin. Students are allowed to elect a maximum of nine semester hours of credit in the College of Business. Credits earned this way may not count toward a degree in the College of Business.

If you're interested in guest, non-candidate-for-degree, or MIGS admission, follow these steps:

  • Review the College of Business graduate course descriptions, paying particular attention to course prerequisites.  Plan which courses you would like to take.
  • Complete the appropriate application. On the application, you will need to indicate which graduate courses you would like to take.
  • If you're approved, the College of Business will contact you with instructions about registering for your courses. Keep in mind that this may be after the first few days of classes in any given semester.
