FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is the Michigan Transfer Network (MTN)?
The goal of the MTN project is to create a centralized web-based system that would allow any student who has completed a course at any Michigan College or University to find the equivalency for that course at any other Michigan College or University.

Who is sponsoring this site?
The Michigan Transfer Network is sponsored by the Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (a non-profit professional organization) as a service to college and university students in Michigan. It was developed with generous programming and system support from Michigan State University.

Why isn't my school listed anywhere?
The Michigan Transfer Network is an "in progress" site and new schools (and new courses) are being added all the time. If you don't see the college you are looking for, feel free to contact them directly and encourage their participation.

Links to all colleges and Universities in Michigan are available in one central location, the MACRAO Michigan College Mall

Why is my course not listed?
New equivalencies are loaded to the MTN regularly. If you don't see the course you are looking for it does not mean you will not receive credit. Contact the school to which you wish to transfer the course. You can find school contact information on the Participating Institutions page.

In addition to using the MTN, do I still need to talk to an academic adviser and/or go to the counseling office?
It is always a good idea to talk to an adviser or counselor regarding transfer credit. While credits for a course may transfer, check with an adviser/counselor to make sure the class counts towards your degree.

What is the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA)?
The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) was designed to facilitate the transfer of general education requirements from one institution to another. Students may complete the Michigan Transfer Agreement as part of an associate’s degree or as a stand‐alone package at a Michigan community college. To learn more, visit the MACRAO Michigan Transfer Agreement page.

What is the MACRAO Transfer Agreement and how can I find out if a school participates?
The MACRAO Transfer Agreement is designed to facilitate transfer from community colleges to baccalaureate colleges and universities. It provides for transferability of up to 30 semester credits to meet many (and in some cases all) of the General Education Requirements at participating Michigan four-year colleges and universities. To learn more, visit the MACRAO Transfer Agreement page.
