MACRAO / MTA

 

Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA)

(Effective Fall Semester 2014)
The Michigan Transfer Agreement replaces the MACRAO Transfer Agreement and takes effect for students entering Fall 2014 or later. Students starting prior to Fall 2014 will be able to complete the existing MACRAO Transfer Agreement through Summer 2019, or they may complete the MTA requirements. The Michigan Transfer Agreement is designed to facilitate transfer from one institution to another. One of the guiding principles of the agreement is to promote transparency among institutions and ensure accurate transfer information for students. The thirty credit hours of lower-level general education from the sending institution will be accepted as a block of 30 credit hours by the receiving institution. Students may complete the Michigan Transfer Agreement as part of an associate degree or as a stand-alone package.
 

MTA Requirements

To fulfill the Michigan Transfer Agreement, students must successfully complete at least 30 credits, with at least a 2.0 in each course. These credits, which will be certified by ~ Michigan community college, should be met according to the following distributions (see the MTA Articulation Handbook for m0re details):

  • 1 course in English Composition and a second course in English Composition or 1 course in Communications
  • 1 course in Mathematics from one of three pathways: College Algebra, Statistics or Quantitative Reasoning
  • 2 courses in Social Sciences (from two disciplines)
  • 2 courses in Humanities and Fine Arts (from two disciplines excluding studio and performance classes)
  • 2 courses in Natural Sciences including one with laboratory experience(from two disciplines)

 

The MACRAO transfer agreement

This agreement is being replaced by the new Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA), which will takes effect for students entering Fall 2014 or later. Students starting prior to Fall 2014 will be able to complete the existing MACRAO Transfer Agreement through Summer 2019, or they may complete the MTA requirements. The Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admission Officers (MACRAO) Transfer Agreement insures that a student who completes an Associate of Arts, an Associate of Business, or an Associate of Science degree at Glen Oaks Community College will have satisfied the basic 2-year requirements of a 4-year college. Basic 2-year requirements which must be included in the Associate of Arts, the Associate of Business, and the Associate of Science degrees are as follows:

  1. English Composition (6 semester hours)
  2. Natural Science (8 semester hours)
  3. At least one of the natural sciences will be a laboratory course. Mathematics is included in the natural science category. Courses will be taken in more than one academic discipline.
  4. Social Science (8 semester hours) Courses will be taken in more than one academic discipline.
  5. Humanities (8 semester hours) Courses will be taken in more than one academic discipline.
