Graduate Course Credit Information

Courses have been evaluated with respect to their equivalency to the University of Michigan campus-based day classes. The requirements of course content, homework, participation in class, and grading are reviewed and approved by the Advisory Committee on Academic Programs of the School of Public Health. Their credits are valid in various academic programs of the University of Michigan. Acceptance of our courses for credit or substitution for similar courses offered by an institution is dependent upon the policy of that institution.

Grading for Graduate Credit

The Summer Session in Epidemiology adheres to the grading policy of the School of Public Health. Each instructor will provide grading requirements specific to their course (e.g. homework, exercises, exams, presentations, etc.) with clear deadlines and grading schemes. Grading requirements and details can be found on the course syllabus.
