JCMU Academic Credit

All JCMU courses are for-credit and are consistent with the standards of all our Consortium and Affiliate university academic work.

Since a semester or summer abroad is an investment of both time and money, we encourage you to meet with your study abroad advisor and ensure that JCMU will work within your curriculum and to ensure that you earn academic credit for your time spent at JCMU.

All JCMU courses will be reported upon successful completion of the program as courses from your home university if you are a student at one of our Consortium or Affiliate universities, and they will be reported on a Michigan State University transcript for all others. All instructional work is conducted by qualified faculty hired through Michigan State University.

Students from non-Consortium and non-Affiliate universities must check with their home institution to see whether the credits from Michigan State University will transfer. Transcript transfer requests can be made at
