General Transfer Notes and 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.
Program Elective Courses
Select a minimum of three (3) courses from the list below based on your transfer requirements. You may be able to select more than the minimum number of courses required for this section depending on the program and degree requirements at the institution to which you are transferring.
Chemistry and Physics courses should be selected based on your education and career goals. For example, CHM 260 , CHM 261 , CHM 270 , and CHM 271 may be more appropriate for students interested in Pre-Medical, Pre-Vet, Pre-Professional and Graduate School Programs.”
In What Order Should I Take Classes?
Please select courses from the Priority I list. Select courses based on the number of credits you are taking in the semester, for example, if you are a part time student you do not have to take all of the courses listed. 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.
NOTE: This priority schedule assumes the student is prepared to take the courses listed. If prerequisites are required, additional semesters may be required to complete this degree.
