Mid Michigan College recently signed new transfer agreements that will make it easier for community college students to seamlessly transfer to four-year institutions to complete their bachelor’s degrees.
While students have been transferring credits from Mid to universities across the nation for years, these new agreements in the areas of general applied science, applied business, healthcare, and information technology make the process even easier.
Participating four-year institutions will accept the full associate degrees, meaning there will not be a course-by-course evaluation for transferability. Additionally, these four-year institutions will accept credit for prior learning that was previously applied to the associate degree, which is a benefit for students with life experience in their field.
“We’re excited to offer more opportunities for our students,” noted Scott Mertes, Provost at Mid Michigan College. “These transfer agreements will save our students time and money as they pursue their bachelor’s degrees.”
These agreements represent a focus on eliminating common transfer barriers and recognizing the diverse student needs and identities within transfer populations. Mid is working to break down barriers by creating additional options for current students as well as associate degree holders that are already in the workforce to continue their education.
“Employers increasingly see the need for their associate degree-trained employees to return to college for a bachelor’s degree,” said Erica Lee Orians, executive director of the Michigan Center for Student Success at the Michigan Community College Association. “These agreements provide a simplified pathway with multiple university partners across the state to ensure that students can earn a bachelor’s degree.”
