I took a course that transfers as INTERSS.
I took a non-U-M course that transfers as Interdepartmental Social Science credit: INTERSS 201X (or a similar variation). Can it count toward my sociology major?
If the course you took is appearing on your transcript or has already been evaluated by the U-M Credit Evaluators as INTERSS 201X (or a similar variation), send a completed course petition form with a current syllabus and course description to firstname.lastname@example.org. A Sociology faculty member (the undergraduate program director) will review the syllabus and make sure that the course material contains enough sociological concepts, perspectives, and readings to qualify for elective credit. If the faculty member determines that it does, then you can count the transfer course toward the major plan. Click here to read the criteria used to make petition decisions in the Sociology Department.
Remember, a maximum of 15 transfer credits may be counted toward the concentration, subject to departmental approval. The College of LSA has more specific rules about the number of credit hours that may be transferred toward the bachelor’s degree. See the LSA Bulletin for details.
