The University of Miami suggests that students follow a general liberal arts curriculum. Students at two-year colleges are encouraged to follow the Associate of Arts path.
Transfer credit evaluations are only conducted after the student has completed an application and been accepted. Only credits from a regionally accredited institution are transferable to the University of Miami. At UM, the transfer of credits is a two-part process:
  • After the student has been accepted:
  • Transcripts are reviewed on a course-by-course basis.
  • The student will receive a detailed transfer credit evaluation with any possible UM course equivalencies.
  • After arriving on campus:
  • Students will meet with their academic advisors or departmental deans.
  • Advisors will determine how the transferable credits satisfy degree requirements and approve the course equivalencies.
    Credits That Will Not Be Accepted:
  • Credits taken at an institution that is not regionally accredited*.
  • Courses with a Grade Lower than C
  • Physical Education, Professional, or Technical Courses
  • The following credits completed through a Two-Year College: Study Abroad, Independent Study or Internships
  • Life Experience
    Credits earned through online coursework must have a grade of C or better and be taken through a regionally accredited institution. Courses that have grades of C- or lower will not transfer; however, these grades will still be used to compute an admission grade point average.
