Transfer Credits: If you want to take classes elsewhere and transfer them to MTU: use the MTU online Transfer Equivalency system and the course schedules and catalogs from the other college. Choose courses that will transfer to an equivalent course at MTU that are required for your degree. (such as HASS elective)
- To access list of courses already approved for transfer use the Michigan Tech Transfer Equivalency System.
- If the course you want or need is NOT on the Transfer Credit Equivalency list, you can request to have it evaluated for transfer credit by sending the following details to the MTU Transfer Services Office, for each course: (or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 487-3323)
- University or college name
- Course ID and title
- Textbook(s) used (usually on the syllabus)
- Detailed Description (usually on the syllabus)
- If all this information is available online, you can send the exact link to email@example.com. A short catalog description is not enough information to evaluate for MTU credit. You must provide a syllabus.
- Enroll in courses, earn good grades. Grades must be C or better to be accepted at MTU. If the course(s) are pre-requisites to classes you need to register for next semester, have a copy of your transcript from the transfer college sent to MTU, so that our system knows the courses you plan to transfer.
Pre-req? If you are taking a class elsewhere over summer that is a pre-req for something you want to add to your Fall schedule, then contact Nancy Gagnon, firstname.lastname@example.org, to let her know about the course you will be taking, so the registration system knows you are enrolled in the pre-req.
How to transfer credits to MTU after you complete course(s):
- Have an official copy of your transcript sent to MTU’s Registration Office
Office of Student Records & Registration
1400 Townsend Avenue Houghton, MI 49931-1295
