Transfer Steering Committee

In fall 2016, Michigan community colleges and universities established a statewide Transfer Steering Committee, with representatives from more than 30 colleges and universities to guide a more robust transfer student agenda. The Transfer Steering Committee’s mission is to increase associate and bachelor’s degree completion among transfer students from all backgrounds. The objective is to make the overall transfer experience more efficient, easy to understand, and simple to navigate while optimizing credit transfer.

The Transfer Steering Committee, with the support of Michigan Community College Association (MCCA) and the Michigan Association of State Universities (MASU) are using several strategies to achieve this objective, including:

Replacing the Michigan Transfer Network
Developing multi-institutional associate to bachelor’s degree transfer pathways
Aligning mathematics requirements within programs of study
Increasing awards of academic credit for military experience
Spotlighting best practices to improve transfer student success
Producing and utilizing data on transfer student outcomes
