Transfer Credit

Physics Transfer Credit

Procedures for LSA Students:

  • Visit the Office of Undergraduate Admission's online transfer credit database.
  • Courses listed on this database are pre-approved. Take the course and submit an official transcript to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions showing the official course grade.
  • If the course is not listed, please submit an official syllabus, including topics covered, and the course final exam to physics.transfer.eval-requests@umich.edu. In your email, include the name of the school at which the course was taken, the course name and number, and your UMID number.
  • Course evaluation can take a few weeks, so please submit your materials early.

Policies for LSA Students:

  • No online courses are accepted for transfer credit; there are no exceptions to this rule.
  • Please note that due to the unique focus of Physics 135 and Physics 235 (Physics for the Life Sciences I and II), there are not many equivalents.
  • All physics transfer credits follow the general College of LSA transfer credit guidelines. Please review them. Students are responsible for knowing and following these policies.

Procedures and Policies for Non-LSA Students:

  • Consult with your college to discuss transfer credit procedure. 
  • Online courses will not be accepted for physics credit.
