What is the Michigan Transfer Agreement?

The Michigan Transfer Agreement provides transferability of up to 30 semester credits to meet many of the General Education Requirements at participating Michigan four-year colleges and universities. By carefully choosing courses, students may obtain an associate degree from JC and complete the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA).

Who is the MTA available for?

The MTA is available for students who started taking classes at JC in fall 2014 and forward. Students who were attending JC prior to fall 2014  should continue to work on fulfilling the MACRAO requirements included in the catalog of the year they started taking courses at JC.
*Students who started at JC prior to fall 2014 can change over to the MTA but will need guidance to find out if this is the best option for them.
