Michigan Community Colleges Sign New Transfer Agreements with 4-Year Universities

DETROIT – The Michigan Community College Association (MCCA) announced Tuesday that 28 of the state’s community colleges have signed four transfer agreements with 25 four-year colleges and universities in Michigan, intended to allow community college students to transfer more than credits.

The association said community college students will be able to transfer more credits to 25 Michigan universities in four college programs, including biology, business, criminal justice and psychology.

“The new agreements specify major-specific courses that students must take when enrolled in community college that are common to all Michigan institutions,” read a press release from the MCCA. “Identifying these courses makes it easier for community college students to take essential courses before deciding where to transfer. “

A study by the National Student Clearinghouse found that 52 percent of bachelor’s degree holders in Michigan have already enrolled in community college, which is higher than the national average of 49 percent.

“Transferring from a community college to a four-year college or university is more common than ever,” said Erica Lee Orians, executive director of the Michigan Center for Student Success at the Michigan Community College Association. “Our community colleges want to ensure that students receive credit for the courses they have taken when they take the next step in their studies.
