The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) was specifically designed to streamline general education transfers between higher education institutions. One of the guiding principles of the agreement is to promote transparency between higher education institutions and to ensure that students have accurate information about transfers. Some colleges have special articulation agreements with Schoolcraft College for certain programs that allow students to transfer more than the typical 60 credits. See articulation agreements Choose a university or university in the list below: Below we describe the MTA courses by the sending institution. These courses were evaluated based on the distribution needs of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA). Other schools and higher education institutions have different requirements for the transmission of MTA course certificates and different requirements from the courses required for admission. Please check our requirements and deadlines (add a link). The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) is intended to facilitate the transfer of general educational requirements between participating Michigan institutions, with 30 lower-level general education credits accepted by the sending institution as a block by the recipient institution. The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) will replace the MACRAO agreement and will take effect in the fall of 2014. Students who attended school before the fall of 2014 can enter into the existing MACRAO contract until the end of the summer of 2019. A student must complete at least 30 credits with at least 2.0 in each course to complete the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA).
Credits for students who have attended different institutions are assessed and counted as “MTA” transfer requirements or general educational requirements of North Central Michigan College, as long as their host institutions agree that these courses meet general educational requirements, as indicated in the Michigan Transfer Agreement. The person is required to take a credit-bearing course at North Central Michigan College to obtain a satisfactory indication of the MTA on its transcript. For more information on MTA or MACRAO, please contact student Services at (231) 348-6605. Articulation agreements are formal agreements between two or more colleges and universities that document the transfer policies of a particular program or degree in general (or some would require a partnership). See Bay College`s specific articulation agreements with the following higher education institutions and universities. In 2012, Michigan`s legislature passed the language in the Community College`s endowments act, which focused on improving the portability of basic education, revising the current agreement of the Michigan Association of Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) and renaming it the Michigan Transfer Agreement.
