 Michigan Transfer Agreement

MICHIGAN TRANSFER AGREEMENT

The following Kalamazoo Valley Community College courses have been identified as meeting the minimum requirements of the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). To fulfill the Michigan Transfer Agreement requirements students must successfully complete, at a minimum, 30 credits as delineated in each category, with at least a grade of 2.0 in each course. If a course is listed in more than one category it can only be used once.

Students can complete the MTA to meet many lower level general education requirements for transfer from one institution to another. Completion of the MTA does not mean a Kalamazoo Valley student has completed the requirements for a specific Kalamazoo Valley associate degree.

If a student transfers to Kalamazoo Valley Community College, at least one college level credit-bearing course must be successfully completed at Kalamazoo Valley to meet residency requirements of the MTA. "MTA Satisfied" will be posted to a student’s transcript only when the minimum MTA requirements have been met and as requested.

Minimum Requirements

A total of thirty (30) credits as distributed from the categories listed (English, social sciences, humanities and fine arts, natural sciences, and mathematics) must be completed with a grade of 2.0 or greater in each course. If a course is listed in more than one category it can only be used once.
