Michigan Transfer Network online upgrades simplify credit transfer

TRAVERSE CITY — Northwestern Michigan College announced that a new, more user-friendly online option is now available for students who want to transfer their postsecondary education credits from one institution to another.

Fresh upgrades to the Michigan Transfer Network, MiTransfer.org, were unveiled statewide, following nearly two years of development carried out by Michigan’s community colleges, public universities, and independent colleges and universities.

“One of NMC's purposes is transfer education. The new Michigan Transfer Network dramatically improves our students' access to information about how their courses will transfer to the universities throughout Michigan,” said Stephen Siciliano, NMC vice president for academic affairs.

MiTransfer.org allows students to search for courses, view information about the Michigan Transfer Agreement, and link to more information about transferring from and to institutions throughout Michigan.

The upgraded MiTransfer.org site will help make this process easier and better outline the pathways to a degree for NMC students.

The project was funded through the state’s FY 2018 state budget, which included a one-time appropriation to support this statewide initiative under the collaborative leadership of the Michigan Community College Association, the Michigan Association of State Universities and the Michigan Independent Colleges and Universities, all based in Lansing.

The new site, developed after extensive user input and stakeholder feedback, now offers expanded information about course-to-course equivalency and how to complete Michigan’s general education transfer package, known as the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). Explore the site at mitransfer.org and contact NMC for additional information.
