WCC helps make transferring easy


Published on Jul 26, 2013 3:15pm

WCC offers numerous resources to help simplify the process of transferring to four-year schools.

The most important resource is WCC’s counselors and advisors. If you’re planning on transferring, you should meet with a counselor or advisor as early as possible.

They can help identify strong programs at other schools, determine which WCC classes will transfer, design class sequences that will make it easier to maintain a strong GPA, and do much more to help smooth the transfer process.

You can do a lot of your own transfer planning, too. The key to transferring is making sure that your WCC classes will transfer to your intended four-year school.

Michigan’s community colleges and four-year schools have made this easier through the MACRAO transfer agreement. Under the agreement you can transfer up to 30 credit hours of classes to meet many or all of the general education requirements at a four-year school. But only certain classes transfer under the agreement, and you must get at least a C for them to transfer.

WCC’s website offers lots of help with your transfer planning:

  • Transfer resources: A gateway to WCC’s information about transferring
  • Articulation agreements: Formal pacts that list the classes that transfer to specific schools
  • Transfer guides: Lists of classes needed to transfer to specific schools
  • Course-for-course equivalencies: WCC classes and their equivalents elsewhere
  • Schedule of campus visitations: A list of upcoming visits to WCC by reps from four-year schools
