High school students who dually enroll for courses at accredited institutions of higher education may receive credit for courses that have been recognized for transfer to the University of Michigan in accordance with the University's transfer credit policy. Acceptance of courses and credits deemed suitable for transfer to the UM is determined by faculty in the department, school, or college responsible for instruction in the subject area. Among the factors influencing the determination of acceptability are accreditation status, comparable academic quality, student performance and the relationship of the course to other course offerings in the UM academic units.

The High School Student College Credit (HSSCC) letter will be emailed to the student upon receipt of their college transcript. The HSSCC letter includes a form that will need to be filled out by the Registrar's Office of the college or university. Once the form is received, the student may be awarded credit unless the course(s) was taught in a special section only open to high school students.

If the courses meet the University's transfer credit criteria, they will be reviewed by credit evaluators to determine transferability. The course may be assigned as either departmental credit or as an exact course equivalent. You can check out UM's website for commonly transferred courses.

Your advisor will review these with you to determine whether and how these courses will count for distribution. Departmental advisors can meet with you to determine if courses will meet requirements for your academic major.
