A-Level Credit

Does U-M give credit for A-level exams?

If taken, A-level exam results are considered for possible advanced standing credit and up to one year of credit may be earned depending upon exam results. It normally takes four years to earn an undergraduate degree, and students who present three full A-levels with good results may need only three years to fulfill undergraduate degree requirements. In either case, a first-year application would need to be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for admission consideration.

Students who are pursuing or who have completed A-level studies generally will be awarded advanced standing ranging from between six to ten credit hours for certain advanced level examinations completed with a grade of D or better. Three to five credits may be awarded for certain Advanced Supplemental (A/S) exams with an acceptable grade.

Prospective Engineering students who present three successful A-level passes with a high level of achievement should apply as first-year applicants. Advanced standing will be granted only for subjects in which a grade of C or better is earned, with a maximum of eight credits per appropriate subject.

To receive credit, please have a certified copy of any A Level exam results that were taken, including any A/S Levels, sent electronically directly from the issuing institution to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions via the Common Application. In addition, please also fax the results to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 734-936-0740 as soon as you receive them.
