NMC Transfer Guide - without MTA

To: Michigan Technological University - Main Campus

general education - without mta 

Basic Requirements

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

Students wishing to transfer to MTU without completing MTA can fulfill some or all of MTU General Education requirements by choosing courses from this guide. Students only attending NMC for one or two semesters may not have enough time to complete all MTA requirements and would be advised to choose from the courses below.

All MTU degrees require 24 credits (made up of 8 categories) from composition and communication, arts and humanties, and social and behavioral sciences. 6 of these 24 credits need to be at the junior or senior level, and a class cannot be counted in more than one category.

In addition, students need to complete 15 credits from Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics-STEM from list at the bottom of this guide (minimum of 4 credits from mathematics and minum of 7 credits from two different science disciplines-with one including a lab component). Undecided students can choose from that list.  HOWEVER, IF YOU KNOW WHAT MAJOR YOU ARE PURSUING, PLEASE GO DIRECTLY TO THE SPECIFIC MTU TRANSFER GUIDE FROM THIS LINK FOR SPECIFIC STEM REQUIREMENTS FOR THAT MAJOR.

Note: If a student has already completed 24 credits in Communication, Social Science and/or Humanities and 15 credits in STEM these areas may be met. Global Issues, a lab science, and a mathematics course may still be required, however. Contact Jean Burish at (906) 487-1621 prior to scheduling.
