Guest Students

A guest student is a regular degree student in good standing at another institution who is admitted to UM-Dearborn for one term only. Work completed under such an arrangement is considered to be a part of the student's program elected under the jurisdiction of the home institution.

Admission is by means of the Michigan Uniform Guest Application certified by the home institution, and a completed addendum to the application available at The Guest application deadline for any term is the first day of class of that term.

Guest students are expected to receive academic advising from their home institution, although guest students are subject to all rules governing course prerequisites.

Enrollment is limited to a maximum of four semesters. A new application is required for each semester they wish to enroll. If a guest student has previously taken classes at UM-Dearborn, the admission decision will also be based on the UM-Dearborn GPA.

If there are prerequisites for any courses elected, the student is required to submit a copy of the home college/university's transcript to verify that all requirements have been fulfilled and receive the necessary overrides prior to registration.
