^ 2.25 credit courses
* 1.5 or 2 credit course offered over a 7-week period
** A graduate-level non-law student who wishes to take a class at the Law School should consult directly with the professor
teaching that class to make sure he or she has the requisite background.
The student should then fill out an External Enrollment form requesting permission from the administration to enroll for the
course. This form is available on-line. Go to www.law.umich.edu; click on Current Students; click on Office of the Registrar;
click on Registration; click on External Enrollment; log in; click on the link to the form.
Assuming there is room in the class once all law students have had a chance to enroll for the course, the Registrar's Office
will grant the request, notify the student, and create an electronic permission (in other words, an override) in Wolverine
Access to enable him or her to enroll.
Elective approval process:
On rare occasions, we will approve a graduate course (≥ 500 level) not on the approved electives list to fulfill elective credit. All electives must be pre-approved by the Program administration before enrollment in the course. Non-listed courses will be considered for approval on a case-by-case basis. To obtain course approval, submit the STPP Elective Approval Form and course syllabus (URL or file) to the Program Manager. You may also schedule an advising appointment for elective course approval.
Note: STPP electives must include content directly related to the study of science or technology policy as well as student assessment (e.g. exams, written papers, oral presentations, etc.). Attendance only courses (e.g., seminars or journal clubs that do not require student assessment) will not be approved.
