The MACRAO Transfer agreement provides for transferability of up to 30 semester credits to meet many (and in some cases all) of the General Education Requirements at participating four-year colleges and universities. Students may complete the MACRAO Transfer Agreement as part of an associate degree or as a stand-alone package. Visit our Transferring FROM Kirtland web page for transfer information.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are interested in pursuing the MACRAO Transfer Agreement with the intent of transferring to a four-year college or university, it is imperative that you meet with an academic counselor to plan your course work. Our academic advisors have information available regarding transfer and/or articulation agreements and can help guide you in making the best course selection. To meet with a counselor, please call the counseling office at 989-275-5000, ext. 280.
