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.
