Transfer Credit Policy

The Global Islamic Studies Center allows students to take and transfer courses from other institutions to the University of Michigan for prerequisite and minor credit through the approval process described below. Transfer courses must be approved by the center if they are to count toward any Islamic Studies minor requirements. The center does review coursework for potential transfer students to determine how coursework from another institution could be applied to the Islamic Studies minor.

GISC 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 U-M. If the class is listed on the TCE website as transferring as equivalent credit (e.g., ISLAM 216), then no additional steps are required.
  • If the class is listed on the TCE website as transferring as departmental credit (i.e., ISLAM 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 Global Islamic Studies Center at is-advising@umich.edu for evaluation. If known, please indicate also the specific Islamic Studies requirement for which you are seeking credit.
