University Transfer

Students in the classroomMCC 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, one of these must be met:

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