Michigan Technological University maintains a full-time Transfer Services Office for students intending to transfer courses to Michigan Tech. It is in the Registrar's Office, which is located on the first floor of the Administration Building.
All incoming transfer students must submit an application for admission and an official transcript(s) to the Admissions Office.
Collegiate and non-collegiate sources of credit are evaluated as transfer credit when it has been determined that they meet accreditation standards, and that the student has demonstrated an acceptable level of performance in regard to the credit.
The qualifications are:
- Each course considered for evaluation must have been satisfactorily completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better and must be comparable in content, nature, and intensity to courses offered at Michigan Tech.
- Grades and grade point averages are not transferable. Grades are not used in computation of the University or Departmental Grade Point Averages (GPAs).
- The limit on the number of credits that can be transferred is at the discretion of the degree granting department/college/school.
- All transfer credit awarded is recorded on the academic transcript.
Only records of active, degree-seeking students will be updated with transfer coursework.
In order to process transfer credit, an official transcript from the transferring institution is required. For new incoming students, the transcript should be sent to Admissions. For returning students, the transcript should be sent to Transfer Services.
Students planning to transfer their final credits to complete degree requirements at Michigan Tech must obtain approval by completing thedegree completion transfer form.
Students planning to transfer a course that fulfills an approved Michigan Tech prerequisite should email a screenshot of their registration from the transferring institution to Transfer Services. This screenshot must include the institution name, student's name, course number and credit value. The course will be added to the student's record as temporary transfer credit with a grade of 'IS' (in session), allowing the student to register for courses with the prerequisite.
Reverse transfer allows a student to attain an associate’s degree from a Michigan community college while pursuing a bachelor’s degree at Michigan Tech. A student may be eligible to transfer Michigan Tech credit back to a previously attended community college in Michigan. The Michigan Tech credit may count towards both the associate’s and bachelor’s degrees concurrently.
Michigan Tech has agreements with five Michigan community colleges. Please view the transcript release forms from each of the community college partners below:
