NMC Transfer Guide

To: Michigan Technological University - Main Campus

Program: Engineering

2 + 2 OR Traditional Application

Northwestern Michigan College, in conjunction with Michigan Tech, offers a 2 + 2, inter-institutional program leading to the BS degree in Engineering. Students are selected in to this program at NMC with the same admissions or curriculum transfer criteria that is used at MTU. The students who successfully complete the first 2 years of the program at NMC are automatically enrolled as juniors at MTU.

However, students not part of the 2 + 2 program can also apply to MTU through the traditional route. Early application is necessary.

For more information on these programs please contact Jim Coughlin, Health & Science Building, 995-1270.

BASIC REQUIREMENTS

Following this guide will NOT necessarily complete MACRAO requirements and meet NMC's Associate of Science and Arts Degree Requirements. Please meet with a counselor or advisor if you want to meet NMC degree requirements as well as MTU requirements.

Note: Courses not numbered will work for engineering majors 1 -9 listed previously. Courses only for specific program(s) are followed by its number(s) in parenthesis.

Note: If a student has already completed 25 credits (for majors 4, 5, 6, 8) in Communication, Social Science and/or Humanities (28 for majors 1, 2, 3, 7, 9), then communication, social science and humanities areas listed below will be considered to be met. Economics may still be required, however. Contact Nancy Gagnon at (906) 487-3323 prior to scheduling classes in these three areas.
