Delta College has signed new transfer agreements with 25 Michigan colleges and universities, making it easier for students to complete essential courses before transferring to a four-year institution.
Through the agreements, Delta students can transfer more credits in the areas of biology, business, criminal justice and psychology. The agreements outline major-specific courses that students should complete while enrolled at Delta.
“Helping our students succeed by giving them the opportunity to continue their education is a top priority at Delta College,” said Dr. Jean Goodnow, president of Delta College. “I am pleased that my colleagues across the state are working together on this very important initiative to provide new pathways for our students.”
The agreements are part of a statewide initiative. The Michigan Community College Association announced in February that all community colleges in the state have signed transfer agreements with public and independent colleges in Michigan, allowing students to transfer more credits.
Additional programs will be added to the transfer initiative in August 2020. They include communication, mechanical engineering, social work, art, exercise science and public health.
Delta advisors are available to assist students in planning a course schedule and how those courses apply to degree programs at participating universities.
