TRANSFER GUIDE

Code:   1123                                                                       
This agreement will be replaced by the new Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA),
which will take effect for all students entering Fall 2014 or later.  Students
who started prior to Fall 2014 will be able to complete the existing MACRAO
Agreement through Summer 2019.  Details of the MTA will be posted as they
become available.

The agreement provides for transfer ability of up to 30 semester credits to
meet many (in some cases all) of the General Education Requirements at
participating Michigan four year colleges and universities. Students may
complete the MACRAO Transfer Agreement as part of an associate degree or as a
stand-alone package. Completion of requirements for the MACRAO Transfer
Agreement does not necessarily mean that a student has completed the
requirements for a specific LCC associate degree. At least 10 semester 
credits used to complete the MACRAO Transfer Agreement must be earned in 
attendance at Lansing Community College.

When coursework and residency requirements for meeting the MACRAO Transfer 
Agreement have been completed, it is the student's responsibility to request 
the statement 'MACRAO Agreement Satisfied' be posted on their LCC transcript 
by completing a MACRAO-CORE AUDIT request in the Academic Advising Center. 
The completed form will be submitted to and processed by Enrollment Services.

The minimum basic two-year requirements are:
    English Composition   - 6 Credits    Social Science - 8 Credits
    Science & Mathematics - 8 Credits    Humanities     - 8 Credits
The following establishes the approved list of LCC courses under the four 
major distribution requirements for the MACRAO Transfer Agreement.  Courses 
taken before Fall Semester 1993 will not automatically satisfy the MACRAO 
requirement. If you took courses during this time, the courses may satisfy 
MACRAO requirements. If you would like to request a substitution to the MACRAO 
requirements complete and submit the Request for Term Course Substitution for 
MACRAO Requirements. Only courses in which at least a 2.0 is received may be 
applied to this agreement.

A course that is transferred to LCC from another college or university and is 
not equivalent to a specific LCC course may be used to satisfy MACRAO if it is  
a general education course, fits into one of the MACRAO areas, and meets LCC's
MACRAO Guidelines.  To have such a course considered for MACRAO, a student must
obtain documentation about the courses from the school where it was completed 
and submit that documentation to Enrollment Services.  Requests may also be made 
to Enrollment Services to have credits earned through AP, CLEP or DSST tests 
which did not receive specific LCC course equivalency evaluated for MACRAO.

I.   English Composition (minimum of 6 semester credit hours)
     Any one course from each group:
        1. WRIT 121 or WRIT 131 
        2. WRIT 122 or ENGL 122 or WRIT 132 or ENGL 132
     A students with a waiver for WRIT 121 indicated on their record must 
     elect a second course from the 200-level offerings in WRIT or ENGL.  
     Waiver of WRIT 121 should be printed on the student's transcript.
