Transferring Credits Into Michigan Tech

Transfer Credits: If you would like to take classes elsewhere and transfer them to MTU, use the online Transfer Equivalency system to look up classes.

  • Choose courses that will transfer to an equivalent course at MTU that are required for your degree.
  • To access list of courses already approved for transfer use the Michigan Tech Transfer Equivalency System.
  • If the course you are looking for is NOT on the Transfer Credit Equivalency list, you can request to have it evaluated for transfer credit by sending this information to the  MTU Transfer Services Office (Jean Burich), Admin Bldg 130, for each course:  (or email,  or call 487-3323)
