Transfer Agreements

MCC works closely with many four-year institutions to develop agreements that assure smooth transfer of courses and degrees. There are four types of these articulation agreements:

Associate-to-Bachelor’s (A-to-B) Agreements

Associate-to-Bachelor’s Agreements provide for completion of an associate degree in the process of obtaining a bachelor’s degree. Most, if not all, of the credits in the associate degree transfer to the four-year institution, often with the transfer student being awarded junior class standing. In order to take advantage of these agreements, students must complete the entire A-to-B curriculum and graduate from MCC.

Department/College-Based General Education Transfer Guides

General Education Transfer Guides list all of MCC’s courses that satisfy four-year schools’ general education requirements. Some institutions have an institution-wide general education requirement. Other institutions’ general education requirements vary depending upon the student’s department or major. The Department/College-Based General Education Transfer Guides list the specific general education courses required for a student’s intended major. Completing all of the general education courses that transfer to a specific department or college does not mean students graduate from MCC with an associate degree. Students can complete nearly one-half of a bachelor’s degree at MCC and successfully transfer those classes toward a four-year degree.

Program-Based Transfer Guides

Program-Based Transfer Guides list the courses that satisfy admission requirements to specialized programs such as health or engineering. These guides contain both general education and major course requirements.

Course-by-Course Transfer Guides

Course-by-Course Transfer Guides list MCC courses that transfer to four-year institutions by identifying equivalent courses at the four-year institution. The guides are very useful if students desire to take a specific course at MCC for transfer to a four-year institution. To use the Course-by-Course Transfer Guides effectively, students need to know their specific four-year degree course requirements in order to determine if an equivalent transfer course is available at MCC.

Reverse Transfer

Students who complete 60 quarter credit hours or more at MCC and transfer those credits to a four-year college or university are eligible for the Reverse Transfer Program. They can transfer credits from their four-year program back to MCC to meet the requirements for their declared associate degree.
