Transfer Information

Michigan Transfer Agreement

The Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) Articulation Agreement facilitates the transfer of students from community colleges to four-year colleges and universities in Michigan. By carefully choosing courses, students may obtain an associate degree from JC and complete the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). However, students do not need to obtain a degree to earn the MTA designation. If students meet all the requirements of the agreement, they should contact the Registration and Records Office and request the MTA designation on their transcripts.

For the course names please see the General Transfer Certificate (GLTR.CERT).
