We know that many schools and colleges at the University of Michigan promote a minimum transfer credit recommendation. Things are different at Stamps. A year of community college—or even a semester—is enough for you to start the process of your transfer application.
Bottom line: don’t worry about not having “enough” credits to transfer. We’re more interested in your portfolio and your college grades than anything else.
Stamps maintains the following guidelines about transferring credits from other institutions:
- Up to 64 credits can be transferred from another institution.
- BFA students may transfer up to 15 credits of studio work (9 at an introductory level and 6 at a higher level)
- BA students may transfer up to 9 credits of studio work (6 at an introductory level and 3 at a higher level)
We know it can be tough to figure out which courses at your community college or university satisfy our prerequisites. Hang in there! You’ve got this, and we’re here to help.
