Transfer Next Steps

1. Accept Your Offer:
Visit your personal admission portal to view your letter of admission and accept your admission.

2. Finance Your Education:
If you haven’t yet filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) we recommend doing so. Annual submissions are available beginning on October 1st of the year prior to your enrollment. This is your access to federal and state grants you may be eligible to receive, low-interest rate student loans, and work-study funds. Don’t forget to list Detroit Mercy’s school code, 002323, as your first choice. Detroit Mercy will then create a package for you. You can view and accept your award via My Portal Your Admissions Counselor will also review the information with you.

3. Advising & Registration:
Your official transfer credit evaluation will be mailed to you within two weeks of your admission. This evaluation will confirm how your previous coursework transferred to Detroit Mercy. It will also indicate whether placement testing is needed prior to registration. Be sure to reach out to your academic advisor to set up your first appointment—you can find his/her contact information in your letter of admission.

4. Resources and Tips:
