MTA Approved Courses
MTA Evaluation Form

The Michigan Transfer Agreement facilitates the transfer of students from community colleges to four-year colleges and universities in Michigan. By carefully choosing courses, students can earn an associate degree from Kirtland and complete the Michigan Transfer Agreement; however, students do not need to obtain a degree in order to earn the MTA designation. If students want to request the “MTA Satisfied” on their transcript, they should fill out the MTA Evaluation Form and send it to the Registrar’s Office for review.

  • Minimum of 30 credits.
  • A grade of “C” or higher is required for each course.
