BASIC REQUIREMENTS

Liberal Studies courses - except Composition - must be taken outside the department in which the student is completing a first major or minor, unless major/minor is General Science or Social Studies.

NMU is a participating member of the MACRAO Transfer Agreement. Students transferring directly from NMC with the MACRAO stamp will have fulfilled divisions 1-4 of the Liberal Studies program at NMU. If you attend another college (2 yr. or 4 yr.) before attending NMC - or before you receive the MACRAO stamp - the MACRAO agreement will not apply to your NMU transfer. If you do not fulfill the MACRAO agreement, you will need to use 2 transfer guides to fulfill NMU's Division requirements: this guide and General Education Without MACRAO. For more information on the MACRAO stamp, please contact a counselor at NMC or NMU.
