A transfer student is defined as a student who enrolled and attended a postsecondary institution anytime after the summer following high school graduation, and who then wishes to attend a different college or university. If you have earned less then 19 semester hours of transferable credit, we will also need to receive an official high school transcript. ACT or SAT scores will also be required unless you graduated from high school more than two years ago. Admission requirements for transfer students require a 2.0 cumulative grade point average and to be eligible to return to your former college(s).

The MACRAO Transfer Agreements through Kirtland Gaylord M-TEC and North Central Michigan College allow for smooth transferability of courses among participating Michigan colleges and universities.

It stipulates that 30 semester hours of 100-level and above compatible general coursework will satisfy typical freshman and sophomore-level general education requirements for the bachelor’s degree at participating universities. A KCC or NCMC student who completes the 30 credit hours for the MACRAO Transfer Agreement and who seeks to transfer to another institution must request that Student Services stamp his/her transcript “MACRAO Agreement Satisfied.” Check each school’s policies for further information.
