Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA)

The MiTransfer Pathways builds on the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). The MTA allows transfer students to select designated courses to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours fulfilling MTA distribution requirements. Students following MiTransfer Pathway agreements should complete the MTA in accordance with the sending institutions' course designations and consider whether any recommended MiTransfer Pathways major-specific courses will "double count" to fulfill MTA distribution requirements in planning their transfer. More information about the Michigan Transfer Agreement.  

The MTA Mathematics distribution area allows students to complete one of three math pathways. The Art MiTransfer Pathways faculty recommended that students complete a course in the Quantitative Reasoning pathway.

Michigan Transfer Pathways Courses

These courses are commonly agreed upon for transfer in this program around the state among participating institutions.

Art History I Not offered     
Art History II Not offered    
Drawing I ART 1510 Basic Drawing  3
20 Design ART 2570 (2&30) Advanced Design 3
30 Design ART 1520 (2&30) Basic Design 3

* Indicate the total number of contact hours for the course for the entire term (i.e. 64, 67.5, 75, 90). Course equivalency will be determined by universities, in part, based on the number of contact hours.

Studio Art Courses 

It is recommended that students complete two studio art courses in two different mediums. Studio art courses should be selected on consultation with a faculty advisor based on the students' major, concentration, or focus. These courses may transfer as part of the associate degree but may not transfer as course-to-course equivalencies.

Remaining Degree Requirements

These are additional associate degree requirements that are not MTA or MiTransfer Pathways courses. They might not be accepted for transfer by universities participating in the agreement.
