University Transfer


MCC offers the University Transfer Program for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution. The University Transfer Program is parallel to the courses taken by freshmen and sophomores at universities and senior colleges. Students who plan to continue their studies at a university should secure a catalog from that school so that their schedules can be formatted to parallel the senior institution’s curriculum.

The University Transfer Associate in Arts degree consists of a series of core courses and a selection of transferable courses based on the student’s desired major. Generally, one-half of the hours required for a bachelor’s degree may be transferred from a community college to apply to a degree at a senior institution.

While there are no programs designed for transfer to senior institutions that require a minimum ACT score for admission, the following is a guide for placement in most general education courses at MCC:

  • Attain a 17 composite score on the ACT. (Some courses require higher for placement purposes.); or
  • Score 70 or higher on the ACCUPLACER Reading Section; or
  • Earn a “C” or above in Intermediate English and Reading (ENG 0124); or
  • Complete 15 semester hours with a “C” average or above at an accredited college or university. Developmental courses do not satisfy this requirement.

The Associate in Arts (AA) Degree is awarded to students who complete the 38-semester hour Core Curriculum for University Transfer and also complete additional 22 semester hours in approved transferable courses. Note: CTE courses will not count towards the AA degree.
