Rackham students can transfer up to six (6) credits of unused, graduate level course-work taken outside of U-M to their Master’s program. Students may transfer a total of fifteen (15) credits of internal and external credit combined. A student must complete at least eight (8) hours of graded graduate-level coursework in Rackham and have at least a B cumulative grade point average before requesting a transfer of credit. Please see the Rackham handbook for rules governing transfer credit.
To place a transfer credit request, please submit your request via the Rackham transfer credit request system. Add the current graduate chair as “grad chair 1” and the graduate programs coordinator as “grad chair 2.”
Students in M.Eng. programs follow the same rules as Rackham, but the request is made to the College of Engineering via paper form. Please contact the graduate programs coordinator for details.
The Center for Research on Learning and Teaching in Engineering offers instruction for new GSIs and other resources.
