Grades of less than 2.0 will not transfer to CMU.

Students may find it advisable to follow the distribution requirements of the MACRAO Agreement as opposed to this sheet.

NMC students who complete the Associate of Science and Arts degree requirements will automatically fulfill the CMU University Program requirements in General Education, and will satisfy the MACRAO Agreement. The Advising Center has worksheets outlining requirements for the Associate of Science and Arts, the MACRAO Agreement, and Transfer Guides for specific majors.

Northwestern Michigan College does not assume final responsibility for the accuracy of information on this guide. The final responsibility for the successful transfer of classes suggested on this guide rests with you and the institution you plan to transfer to. It is strongly recommended that you visit the institution as early in your academic career (prior to transfer) as possible.
