The University of Michigan is pleased to welcome applicants from other colleges and universities.
Financial aid for students who transfer from community colleges is available from university, federal, and state programs. Transfer students are considered for most university scholarships upon admission to U-M.
The university offers two scholarships specifically for entering transfer students from Michigan community colleges:
- Michigan Community College Scholarship
- Michigan Community College Scholar Award
To be considered for these scholarships, students must apply for financial aid. For more details about these opportunities, click here to download a PDF brochure about these programs.
The Office of Financial Aid administers a Child Care Subsidy Program for students with young, dependent children. This program assists parents with the cost of licensed child care. More information is available on the Students with Child Care Expenses page.
The Current Student Scholarship in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts is available for transfer students in their first fall and winter terms of enrollment. These scholarships are based on financial need. See details about the LS&A scholarship here.
For general information about admission to U-M, including transfer credits and course equivalencies, visit the Office of Undergraduate Admissions website.
All community college students who are considering transferring to U-M should apply for financial aid. Students transferring to the University of Michigan from community colleges and from two- and four-year colleges and universities should follow the application instructions for New & Prospective Undergraduates. Information for students who are applying for Winter term admission is also included on that page.
If you are a current U-M student and you want to reapply for financial aid, see the instructions for Current Undergraduates.
A note to non-resident students: Although the University does not have sufficient funds to meet the full demonstrated financial need of non-resident students directly, students may be eligible for scholarships from U-M schools or colleges or from private sources. Other options for non-resident students are the federal Direct PLUS Loan and private education loans.
