Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement Examinations are prepared by the Educational Testing Services of the College Board Programs. These examinations are administered after the AP course is offered in the upper level of high school. MACC accepts AP credit based on a review and evaluation by the Dean of Academic Affairs or the Dean of Career & Technical Programs. An AP chart, which lists the required scores to receive AP credit, is posted below.

What is MISSOURI REVERSE TRANSFER?

MRTThe process of allowing college students or former college students who have completed credits for an associate’s degree to receive that degree even if they have transferred to a different college or university, or stopped out of higher education altogether.

Missouri has moved forward with a statewide policy to help more Missourians earn a degree.

For more detailed information on Missouri Reverse Transfer take a look at the Missouri Department of Higher Education website.

What are the BENEFITS?

  • Earn your Associates Degree while pursuing your bachelor’s degree

  • Possible Career Advancement with earned associate degrees

  • Qualify for More Jobs

  • A degree can help you earn more money

  • Possibly meet general education requirements at your 4 year transfer institution

Are you ELIGIBLE?

You must have earned a minimum of 15 credit hours at a single two-year institution to be eligible for a reverse transfer degree. Students are not eligible for the program if they currently possess an associate degree or higher.

If you have questions regarding the Reverse Transfer process, please contact the MACC Reverse Transfer, Coordinator
Amy See
AmyS@macc.edu 
573-231-0941

Do you have questions?

Get your answers from your campus Reverse Transfer Coordinator or through our FAQ.

Moberly Area Community College welcome’s students who have attended other colleges and universities.  If you have recently transferred to MACC from another college or university, and received a student loan that has an outstanding balance, don’t forget about your repayment obligation!  Also, make sure you have updated your contact information with your student loan servicing center to avoid any potential communication problems.

You may be eligible for an in-school deferment while enrolled at MACC, if you are enrolled in at least six credit hours.  In-school deferment may allow you to postpone your student loan payments while you are enrolled at MACC.

In order to qualify for the in-school deferment YOU MUST TAKE THE FIRST STEP.  You must update your enrollment status with the National Student Loan Database System (NSLDS); after you complete this step, MACC will certify your enrollment with the NSLDS.  It may take 30-60 days for NSLDS to communicate the enrollment status to the national student loan servicing centers. I advise you to follow-up with your loan servicer(s) to make sure the enrollment data is received.

Here are the easy steps you need to take:

  1. Go to StudentAid.gov and Log In using your FSA ID/Password

  2. Find your name at the top right corner

  3. Click your name and then Enrollment

  4. From the My Enrollment screen, click Add Enrollment

  5. Enter School Details: State = Missouri, School = Moberly Area Community College (00249100)

  6. Use the School Enrollment Start Date Calendar to select the first day of the semester (example: August 24, 2020)

  7. Click Add School

  8. Review the information in My Requests

  9. Click Submit Request

We hope your educational experience at MACC is rewarding!  If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the Financial Aid Office, by email at FinancialAid@macc.edu, or by phone at 660-263-4100, extension 11301.

Transfer Credit to MACC

Transfer credit from any post-secondary institution will be considered if regional, national, professional and/or specialized accreditation has been awarded and recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The Higher Education Directory (HED) lists the accredited, degree-granting institutions of post-secondary education in the United States and its outlying areas.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

  • Based on guidelines for student transfer and articulation among Public Missouri Colleges and Universities (CBHE, 1987), in most cases, MACC will accept all Associate degrees and/or Bachelor degrees as meeting all general education core requirements for the AA/AAS/AAT degrees only. Exceptions would be the ADN, AADN, and OTA degrees and PN Certificate, which have specified time limits, and the A.S. degree, which has many specified core requirements. In both cores, the Registrar will evaluate courses individually regardless of whether or not a degree was awarded.

  • Transfer credit will only be considered from schools that are listed in the Higher Education Directory.

  • In general, college courses are not accepted from another college/university if taken at the junior/senior level. The only exception to this would be courses that have a direct equivalent to one of our classes (i.e. Accounting Principles is sometimes taught at the 300-level at area universities). Additionally, students transferring a “D” grade will be considered for credit by MACC.

  • Degree requirements are determined by the catalog in place at the time of initial enrollment.

  • Physiology must be repeated if completed five years or more before the date of entry into the PN program. Nursing courses taken at other schools of nursing or at MACC will not be accepted for transfer into the PN Program after two years. In addition, Physiology and Microbiology must be repeated if completed five years or more before the date of entry into the ADN and AADN programs. Finally, Anatomy and Physiology must be repeated if completed five years or more before the date of entry into the OTA program. These requirements also apply to science courses taken at MACC.

  • State Technical College of Missouri course work will be evaluated for credit if taken during the summer 1997 semester or thereafter.

Military Transcript Evaluation Procedure

  • All veterans who provide a DDT214 (Basic Training) or INOBE will be awarded 2 Physical Education (activity) credits.

  • Additionally, all military transcripts, which are requested by a veteran (admitted MACC student) to be evaluated, must be submitted to the Registrar. If possible, a veteran should submit a military transcript to the Registrar, which is available on ANY veteran who attended military service from 1985 to present.

  • If the veteran (student) is a Technical/Career major, the transcript/military records will be forwarded to the Dean of Technical/Career Education. Veterans seeking an AA/AS/AAT degree will have their evaluation completed by the Registrar (or Dean of Student Affairs). Evaluations will only be completed on veterans (students) who have a declared major.

Transfer Credit to Other Institutions

Educational requirements vary from one institution to another. For this reason, it is extremely important that students who plan to transfer to another institution work closely with an MACC Advisor in planning their course schedule. In addition, the information below can help guide you as you prepare for the transfer process.

What are the Advantages of Graduating from MACC Before You Transfer?

  • Transferring to another institution after you complete your degree is much more seamless than transferring without your degree. MACC has articulation (transfer) agreements with many institutions which allow you to transfer all credits completed, enter the transfer institution as a junior, and complete your bachelor’s degree on time.

  • Students who complete their degree before transferring typically do better academically after transferring to a four-year college or university.

  • Transfer students who have completed their two-year degree are often eligible for transfer scholarships that may amount to thousands of dollars.

  • Earning a two-year degree may afford you the opportunity to earn more. Many employers prefer potential employees who have earned a degree and will often make salary adjustments based on having completed a degree.

  • Completing a degree demonstrates commitment, dedication, and follow-through. All of these attributes are important to potential employers and transfer institutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Prior to enrolling in classes at MACC, you should think about your future transfer plans. Choosing a degree program at MACC that will meet your future goals and allow you to smoothly transfer is an important part of the enrollment process. In addition, you should enroll in courses each semester that are appropriate to the freshman and sophomore years at the transfer institution. You should discuss your transfer and enrollment plans with an MACC Advisor. Finally, prior to finishing your first semester, you should establish contact with the institution you plan to transfer to and review that institution’s college catalogs, admission information, and website.

General Transfer Tips:

  1. Plan ahead. It is never to early to begin thinking about your transfer plans.
  2. Take time to research possible transfer institutions. As you research transfer options, take into consideration location, cost, degrees offered, class sizes, etc.
  3. Compare the differences between private, public, in-state, and out-of-state institutions.
  4. Review admission, financial aid, and scholarship deadlines.
  5. Research how credits transfer to the institution (e.g. how do transfer credits apply to the degree I am interested in pursuing?).
  6. Schedule a meeting with an advisor at the transfer institution..

MACC degrees that are designed to easily transfer include: AA (Associate of Arts), AAT (Associate of Arts in Teaching), and AS (Associate of Science). Health Science and AAS (Associate of Applied Science) degrees may transfer; however, you will need to choose courses carefully.

Transfer Equivalency Guide 

The best time to transfer is once you have completed your degree with MACC; however, you should not wait until your last semester to begin the transfer process. Many transfer institutions have priority application and financial aid dates which may occur during the semester you are graduating or even the semester prior to your graduation. It is important that you verify these dates with the transfer institution. In addition to completing an admission application and FAFSA with your transfer institution’s school code, you will want to request a final, official, MACC transcript be sent to the transfer institution. (You will want to delay sending the transcript until your final grades have posted and your degree has been awarded.)

  1. What are the admission requirements (e.g. specific GPA)?
  2. Does the college accept applications at any time or only by a specific deadline?
  3. Are there specific programs offered to transfer students to help with the transfer process?
  4. How many credits do you accept in transfer?
  5. Will my MACC GPA transfer?
  6. Do you accept “D” grades in transfer?
  7. What is the average class size (i.e. student to instructor ratio)?
  8. Are ACT or SAT scores required?
  9. What is the tuition and fee and room and board costs?
  10. What steps are required to apply for financial aid?
  11. Am I required to live on campus?
  12. How many transfer students do you accept each semester/year?
  13. Do you provide job search assistance after graduation?
  14. What tutoring assistance is available?
  15. Do you offer parking? If so, does it cost?
  16. Do you offer student activities?

A transfer articulation agreement is a formal agreement between two (or more) colleges and their degree programs. Often these agreements are called transfer agreements, transfer guides, or degree pathways. The goal of these agreements is to provide students a seamless, transfer pathway between the colleges. In addition, the agreements often outline details regarding guaranteed admission, transfer credits, degree and academic requirements, and scholarship information.

MACC has established articulation agreements with the following colleges and universities. See an MACC Advisor for more information.
