Transfer Credit Policy

CMENAS Transfer Credit Policy

The Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies (CMENAS) allows students to take and transfer courses from other institutions to the University of Michigan for prerequisite, major, and minor credit through the approval process described below. Transfer courses must be approved by the Center if they are to count toward any MENAS prerequisite, major, or minor requirements. The Center does review coursework for potential transfer students to determine how coursework from another institution could be applied to the MENAS major or minor.

CMENAS Transfer Credit Evaluation Process

Currently Enrolled U-M Students

Check the Transfer Credit Equivalency (TCE) website to see if the class has already been approved to transfer to UM.If the class is listed on the TCE website as transferring as equivalent credit (i.e. MENAS 244), then no additional steps are required.

If the class is listed on the TCE website as transferring as departmental credit (i.e. MENAS DEPT) submit the course syllabus to is-advising@umich.edu to have the course evaluated.

If the class is not listed on the TCE website, submit an evaluation request using the Transfer Credit Equivalency Request Form. If you are informed that the course transfers as departmental credit, submit the name of the institution and the course syllabus to is-advising@umich.edu to have it evaluated.

Prospective Transfer Students

Check the Transfer Credit Equivalency (TCE) website to see if the class has already been approved to transfer to U-M. If the class is not listed on the TCE, then it has not previously been evaluated for transfer. Submit the name of the institution and the course syllabus to the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies at is-advising@umich.edu for evaluation. If known, please indicate also the specific MENAS requirement for which you are seeking credit.
