MI Transfer Agreement (MTA)

What is the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA)?

 The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) is a statewide agreement that provides transferability of 30 college credits to meet many, ‚Äčif not all, of the General Education requirements at participating Michigan four-year colleges and universities. Visit the Michigan Transfer Network website for more information on how MTA credits are accepted at participating 4-year colleges and universities.

Students must complete least one credit at WCC for us to award MTA.

To fulfill the Michigan Transfer Agreement, students must successfully complete at least 30 credits with a grade of a 2.0 (or C) or higher in each course according to the distribution shown below.

Which Courses Can Be Used?

  • Credits earned through enrollment at WCC
  • Credits earned at other in-state and out-of-state accredited institutions
  • Dual enrollment and early/middle college credit that is accepted by WCC
  • Advanced Placement (AP) credit
    • However, the receiving institution will determine transferability of the course consistent with its AP credit policy
  • Additional areas of prior learning are not applicable to the MTA such as International Baccalaureate (IB), College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES Subject Standardized Test (DSST) or credit awarded through American Council on Education (ACE).
