Transferring to a four-year college or university from Glen Oaks Community College may become simpler, with help from transfer agreements signed with 25 Michigan colleges and universities.
The initiative, directed by the Michigan Community College Association, provides clear direction and guidelines to assure students a smooth transfer, according to president David Devier.
Transfer agreements allow Glen Oaks students to transfer more credits to four-year schools in the areas of biology, business, criminal justice and psychology. The new agreements specify major-specific courses that students should complete while enrolled at Glen Oaks that are common across all institutions in Michigan.
The identification of these courses makes it easier for students to complete essential courses before deciding where to transfer, Devier said.
