Transfer Students Admission Requirements

You must meet the following requirements to be considered for transfer admission:

Complete the equivalent of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor's courses in First-Year Writing, Economics 101, and Calculus I, II, or III, each with a grade of C or better, by June 1.

  • AP credit for Calculus I or II (Math 120 or 121) will substitute for the required course in calculus.
  • IB or A-level credit for Economics 101 and U-M Calculus I, II, or III will substitute for the required courses in economics and calculus.
  • Please review the Advance Standing Credit guidelines for AP, IB, and A-level to see what scores are needed to obtain course credit.

Earn at least 27 credits that will transfer to U-M Ann Arbor, each with a grade of C or better, by June 1.

  • At least the final 13.5 of these credits must be earned in the United States. The Ross BBA program does not accept transfer students directly from institutions located outside the U.S.
  • AP, IB, and A-level credits do not count toward the 27 required credits.

We urge prospective transfers to consider whether their courses will meet the admission requirements before submitting an application.

Admission is highly selective. We evaluate all applicants according to the same criteria, and we do our best to create a fair basis for comparison among applicants from widely differing schools. About 1 percent of last year's entering class were admitted as transfer students.
