Transfer students who have taken a writing course at another college or university may be able to use that course to satisfy the First-Year Writing Requirement. Transfer students should consult the list of approved courses from other schools, as well as the list of courses that are not approved, to see whether the course satisfies the First-Year Writing Requirement at UM.
If your school or course is not listed on either the approved or not approved list, and you wish to have it considered for First-Year Writing Requirement credit, you will need to fill out the "Petition for Transfer Course Credit" form.
