How to Transfer College Credits in Michigan
Transferring college credit in Michigan often depends on the policies of each individual educational institution. Michigan does not have state wide public institution transfer policies, however, most colleges and universities follow general transfer agreements.
The Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars & Admissions Officers Transfer Agreement (MACRAO Transfer Agreement) makes it easy to transfer from Michigan’s community colleges to four year colleges and universities. Under this agreement, students can transfer up to 30 semester credits to meet general education requirements. With this specific set of courses completed, all of the courses will transfer and be applied toward general education requirements.
Similar to the MACRAO Transfer Agreement, the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) allows students to transfer general education requirements between institutions. In fact, the MTA is used for new students, and will completely replace the MACRAO Transfer Agreement when if phases out in summer 2019. The MTA package of 30 credits can be completed on its own, or as part of an associate’s degree. The package transfers seamlessly to any institution that participates in the MTA.
It is important to note that not all colleges and universities in Michigan participate in the MACRAO Transfer Agreement and MTN. Some participate fully, and some have limitations and provisions.
Students can research transfer course equivalencies with the Michigan Transfer Network. On this website, students can plan to take transferable courses, or see how courses you’ve already taken would transfer to another school.
