Starting your college career at a community college is a great option! Community colleges are a great way to explore classes that interest you and save you money!
The Michigan Transfer Agreement allows for general education classes to transfer easily between the majority of Michigan colleges and universities.
You will need to apply to the college(s) you are interested in, but you need to make sure to indicate you are a “Transfer” student. You will also need to send your transcripts to the college(s) you are applying to transfer to. Contact the Register’s/Student Enrollment Office at your current college.
Talk to your academic advisor at your community college! They can help you navigate the process.
Also, check out the transfer admissions page on the 4 year college’s website. They often have transfer guides for your specific community college and give you an outline of which classes to take while you are at the community college.
Check out these examples!
Community Colleges often partner with 4 year public and private universities on specific programs. Sometimes you are able to take classes offered through the 4 year institution right on the community college’s campus. This makes transferring even easier!
For example, West Shore Community College partners with Michigan State University, Central Michigan University, Davenport University, and Ferris State University. Click here to learn more about our local community college’s partnerships!
