Michigan's 28 community colleges have signed four historic transfer agreements with 25 four-year colleges and universities in Michigan, the Michigan Community College Association.


The agreements will allow community college students to transfer more credits to 25 universities in Michigan in four academic programs including biology, business, criminal justice, and psychology.


The new agreements specify major-specific courses that students should complete while enrolled in community college that are common across all institutions in Michigan.


A study conducted by the National Student Clearinghouse found that 52 percent of bachelor’s degree earners in Michigan previously enrolled at a community college, which is higher than the national average of 49 percent.
