University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute


Academic Planning

Due to the intense core curriculum built into the Joint Institute’s undergraduate program, most freshman students already have a good idea what their schedule will look like in the first year of study. However, students should plan for the future, including possible acceptance into the JI Dual Degree or Sequential Graduate Undergraduate Study Program (SGUS) with the University of Michigan. Electives should be chosen carefully.

The Joint Institute’s Student Counseling office and Academic Affairs office provides support to students with scheduling concerns.
