NMC Transfer Guide - MTA

To: Central Michigan University - Main Campus

Program: Child Development

Due to the specific nature of this major, students should seriously consider transferring at the end of their first year. CMU transfer students who wish to earn a teaching certificate, which is encouraged, should follow the CMU Elementary Education curriculum at which point you may wish to complete the courses listed on that guide at NMC. If you plan on transferring after one year, complete MTA courses and contact a counselor or advisor at NMC or CMU for assistance.

Transfer students must complete graduation competencies for CMU (ENG 111, 112, COM 111 and MTH 111) at NMC or they will be required to complete these classes during their first or second semester at CMU.

BASIC REQUIREMENTS

Completion of basic requirement courses at NMC will fulfill general requirements at CMU. Upon request at the NMC Records and Registration Office, a statement will be placed on your transcript, "MICHIGAN TRANSFER AGREEMENT (MTA) SATISFIED".
