Mid offers the MTA Endorsement through its Guided Pathway.

The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) is an agreement between all community colleges in Michigan, its 15 public universities, and a number of other institutions. The MTA is a 30-credit block of transferrable credits that count primarily toward general education requirements. MTA credits are included in most of Mid's transfer degrees as well. Upon successfully completing MTA requirements, your Mid Michigan College transcript will feature an MTA Endorsement.

How does the MTA work?

You're worried Mid credits won't transfer. We get it, this is a big concern. The good news? You don't need to worry! By starting with your end goal in mind, we customize a transfer pathway that works for you and your intended destination college or university.

Mid credits go with you because we participate in many transfer agreements that ensure our courses count at colleges and universities across the State and Country. Our team can help you select the courses that best fit your goals--saving you time and money. No matter where your path leads, Mid can be a part of your journey.

What is General Education?

“Why do I have to take courses that don’t apply to my major?” is a question you might ask.

Where major requirements are intended to provide you with a depth of knowledge in a specified field of study, general education requirements are intended to provide a breadth of knowledge. General education is crucial to developing soft skills like communication, writing, critical thinking, problem solving, and a global understanding of the world.

Request Review for MTA Eligibility

If you need to obtain a Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) endorsement, please contact Registration and Records. The MTA allows for the transfer of 30 credits of core general education courses from a Michigan community college to a Michigan baccalaureate college or university. Students/Alumni may complete the MTA as part of an associate degree or as a stand-alone package if at least one course has been taken after fall 2014. By selecting the MTA, your transcript is flagged for review and processed in the order in which it has been received, this process could take 3-5 business days during our peak enrollment periods. Please submit your request for MTA transcript review with this online form below.

Michigan Transfer Agreement MTA endorsement:

  • Students who want their transcript reviewed for MTA eligibility will need to fill out a request form. Mid's Registration & Records Office will review your transcript and apply the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) endorsement if applicable.
  • Students who took classes prior to fall 2014 may be eligible for the MACRAO (Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers) endorsement, which is similar to MTA but not accepted by as many Michigan colleges and universities.
