Why Reverse Transfer my credits?
- An associate degree can provide better job opportunities while completing your bachelor’s degree
- The associate degree is the nation’s fastest growing work credential; employers recognize its value when recruiting and hiring
- Students who earn an associate degree are more likely to complete their bachelor’s degree.
- There is no risk to you – even though you are applying the hours you have earned at your 4-year college or university toward an associate degree at Mott Community College, your hours earned will still apply toward your bachelor’s degree.
Mott Community College currently has Reverse Transfer Agreements with:
- Central Michigan University
- Eastern Michigan University
- Ferris State University
- Grand Valley State University
- University of Michigan-Flint
- Michigan State University
- Oakland University
- Saginaw Valley State University
If you are interested in participating in Reverse Transfer, fill out the Request for Academic transcript form and send it to your university Registrar. The university will send your official transcript to MCC to be evaluated for credit. You will also fill out MCC’s Request to Graduate form. Once the MCC Registrar receives your university transcript and Request to Graduate, an official audit will be done on your record to see if you qualify for an associate degree.
If you have attended college before and want to get started at MCC, we can make the transition uncomplicated and stress-free. Use your current credits to enter a degree or certificate program here. You can also plan to transfer MCC credits to a four year program. View the complete step by step process in our Admissions Guide for Transfer Students.
Articulation of credit allows students to earn college credit in their high school CTE courses. An agreement is developed by the college and high school teachers if the skills and competencies acquired by students are the same and students will benefit as they continue in a related program of study.
Transfer Credit to another College/University
Mott Community College has established partnerships with Michigan 4-year Colleges and Universities to assist you in transferring from MCC to one of our Partner Schools, maximizing credits earned toward both the Associate and Bachelor's degrees.
Contact an academic advisor at the college you plan to attend to ensure that:
- MCC courses are equivalent to courses at your transfer institution
- MCC credits are related to your major at the transfer institution
Michigan’s public colleges and universities, along with some private colleges and universities, have signed The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). The purpose of the MTA is to ensure a seamless transition from the Community College to 4-year colleges and universities for the transfer student. The MTA guarantees that if you successfully complete† classes in the following categories, 30 hours of general education will be accepted by the transfer institution as a block of general education credits.
- 1 course in English Composition
- A second course in English Composition or 1 course in Communication
- 1 course in Mathematics
- 2 courses in Social Sciences (from two disciplines)
- 2 courses in Humanities and Fine Arts (from two disciplines and excluding studio and performance classes)
- 2 courses in Natural Sciences including one with laboratory experience (from two disciplines)
† Successful completion means a grade of 2.0 or higher in each course.
The MACRAO Transfer agreement was originally developed and signed by Michigan State College and Universities in 1974 to facilitate the transfer process for students. Over the years, as community college curriculum has changed to meet the needs of the constantly changing workforce, 4-year colleges and universities began putting provisos in place. These provisos have required course-by-course evaluation before awarding transfer credit.
Students are highly encouraged to follow the new Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) requirements; however the previous MACRAO Agreement will be honored by the Michigan College and Universities through the Fall of 2019.
Articulation Agreements serve as a bridge and give MCC students additional options, such as two years of coursework at MCC and one year at the college or university (2+2), or three years at MCC and one year at the college or university (3+1). These agreements specify a course taking plan, that when followed by a student at MCC, results in a seamless transfer of credits for the student to their program of study at the university.
Be sure to review the General Education Transfer Guide for the school(s) you're interested in transferring to, as well as any applicable program-specific guides. You can also talk to an MCC Advisor for assistance with transfer planning.
A transfer guide is a list of equivalent community college courses that will meet the program and/or general education requirements for a particular bachelor’s degree. It is important for you to plan your transfer courses with an MCC Advisor/Counselor along with the information from the college or university you are considering.
Transfer Counseling is available to assist students with developing their plans for transferring. Students may take up to two years towards a four year degree at Mott Community and then transfer to a four year college or university.

Representatives from most Michigan public and private colleges and universities visit the MCC campus each semester. For more information about Transfer Advisement Days, contact the Counseling Center, PCC2030. Dates and times are sent to students' MCC email accounts and are also on the Transfer Advisement Days web page.
Michigan four-year universities provide course equivalency lists to assist students in transferring. Course Equivalent Lists tell a student:
- Whether or not a course will transfer
- If a course has an equivalent course at the four year university
- Whether or not a course will fulfill General Education Requirements
Check the University Center located on the MCC Main Campus. This unique partnership allows students to earn a bachelor's or master's degree from a major university without leaving Flint.
