Transferring TO Kirtland

Do you plan to transfer TO Kirtland?

Students intending to transfer credit to Kirtland Community College first need to apply for admission to Kirtland. It is important that a program of study is chosen, because transcripts are evaluated according to the student’s intended program. Official transcripts must be sent directly from each college attended to the Admissions Office at Kirtland. Only courses in which a student received a “C” or better will be considered for transfer credit, unless the program in which the student wishes to enroll has a higher requirement. Time limits on courses are not imposed unless dictated by specific program requirements. Any special requirements for transfer are noted in the transfer tables.

Students who transfer a class which has a higher number of credit hours than the Kirtland equivalent class will be awarded the “excess” credits if their program of study allows for elective credits. (For example, a 4-credit hour US History I course would transfer as HIS 20100 for 3 credits plus 1 hour of “History elective” credit.)

Some equivalent courses are “developmental” in nature. They are assigned a “PR” code, showing which competency requirement would be satisfied by the class if presented for transfer.

Students now have the ability to access transfer information for all schools in Michigan by visiting the Michigan Transfer Network (MTN) website:  www.michigantransfernetwork.org. As databases are completed, they are readied for uploading to the MTN site.  If a needed course equivalency has not yet been posted to the site, please contact Kathleen Wray, Assistant Registrar, at kathleen.wray@kirtland.edu or by calling (989) 275-5000, ext. 303.
