Guest Students

Guest student status is for 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.

It is free and easy to apply online, selecting the applicable "Guest" student type, and students may check the application status online.  

Completed non-degree applications will be accepted until midnight the day prior to the start of classes each semester.

Guest Students are subject to the following policies:

Guest students are expected to receive academic advising from their home institution, although guest students are subject to all rules governing course prerequisites.  If prerequisite coursework necessary for your guest enrollment was taken anywhere other than your home institution, please submit those transcripts as well.

Enrollment is limited to a maximum of four semesters. A new application and updated transcript is required for each semester they wish to enroll. A posted cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better on a student's most recent (home institution) transcript is required to be admissible. If a guest student has previously taken classes at UM-Dearborn, the admission decision will also be based on the UM-Dearborn GPA.
