Uniting our community, national and international forces and as a model public/private partnership, Moberly Area Community College and Central Methodist University are forming The ONE Partnership. One element of this Partnership is CentralMACC. MACC and CMU share an interest in providing MACC associate degree (AA/AS/AAT) enrollees who intend to transfer to and pursue a bachelor’s degree program at CMU the opportunity to concurrently enroll in CMU designated coursework at a MACC price. Thus, students in the program have the opportunity to enjoy a diverse, four-year, private college experience while taking advantage of the affordability of the community college and the diverse levels of academic preparation it accommodates. This agreement is intended to promote the most efficient and effective use of resources and provide a more direct pathway to obtain this goal.
First time college students must have a minimum 17 ACT Composite AND 2.5 HS GPA.
Current college students (who have already received a high school diploma) must be in good academic standing and have a minimum 2.0 college cumulative GPA.
Exceptions may be made upon mutual agreement between MACC and Central Methodist University.
Apply to Central Methodist University as a visiting non-degree-seeking student and enroll at CMU through standard procedures.
Apply to MACC as an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Arts in Teaching degree-seeking student and enroll at MACC through standard procedures.
Enroll full-time in the CentralMACC program, with 9 to 15 credit hours of identified coursework taken at MACC and 3-4 credit hours of identified coursework taken at and unique to CMU, as determined by the respective academic advisors at each institution.
CMU Honors Courses are in addition to this 3-4 credit hour limit per year. In addition, program specific courses, as detailed in associated CentralMACC degree plans may allow for an additional maximum of two courses).
CMU courses should apply toward the major the student intends to pursue once admitted as a degree seeking student to CMU.
Students receive bills from both CMU and MACC. Students must make payments at both institutions.
All CentralMACC courses are charged at MACC tuition rates. Central Methodist University course fees, housing, room and board are extra and charged at Central Methodist University rates. Consortium agreement allows for Federal Aid to apply as a total credit amount.
Current MACC rates apply for classes taken with MACC.
Continued Eligibility Guidelines
Abide by the academic and student conduct policies of MACC for MACC courses and of CMU for CMU courses.
Meet at least once each semester with MACC advisor to determine appropriate course enrollment for the upcoming semester.
Students need to complete 24 credit hours, which includes at least 18 credit hours at MACC and 6 credit hours at CMU, within a 12 month period and maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA at each institution.
Maximum number of semesters within the program is 4, excluding summer terms.
After completing the program (or earlier if determined by the student and academic advisors), apply for transfer admission to CMU and supply copies of all required documents, including transcripts.
Dual admitted students are pursuing their associate degree from MACC, thus receiving financial aid through their “home institution.” Dual admit student will not receive aid through CMU until they are ready to fully transfer and begin as a degree-seeking student at CMU. At the time of transfer, they will notify CMU of their transfer and complete/update their FAFSA.
Some programs have special admittance requirements. Dual admitted students will be encouraged to send unofficial transcripts to CMU from MACC upon the completion of each semester. Dual admitted students must contact the Registrar at CMU via their academic advisor at MACC the semester prior to enrolling in a course at CMU.
