General Transfer Notes & Michigan Transfer Agreement
The coursework needed to complete this program is listed below. The courses commonly transfer and satisfy 4-year program requirements at 4-year institutions in Michigan.
To ensure maximum transferability of individual courses, all course selections should be based on the degree, major, minor, or academic interest at the 4-year transfer institution students plan to attend.
Students should research and utilize all transfer resources available to maximize the number of GRCC courses that transfer and apply to their 4-year program.
Because transferability of courses varies by institution, students should contact the 4-year institution they plan to attend to obtain detailed information about transfer requirements. The 4-year institutions ultimately make the decisions about how each course will be used to meet their program requirements.
GRCC advisors and faculty are available to help students navigate transfer resources and create an individualized transfer plan, including selection of courses, which meets all GRCC and transfer institution requirements.
Graduates of this program will earn an Associate of Arts degree from GRCC and may be eligible to earn the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) credential.
Admission requirements to 4-year institutions and 4-year programs vary. Students should review the specific admission requirements for the institution and program to which they are transferring.
Open Electives Courses
The remaining number of courses needed to complete the program will depend on the number of credit hours remaining needed to reach the 60 credits required for graduation. Course selections should be made based on transfer requirements.

Students are encouraged to use transfer resources available and consult their faculty advisors when choosing Open Elective courses.
In What Order Should I Take Classes?
Please select courses from the Priority I list.

If you are unable to schedule Priority I courses, move to and select from the list of Priority II, Priority III, and Priority IV courses.
