1.  This transfer guide supports an Articulation (partnership) Agreement 
    between Lansing Community College (LCC) and Eastern Michigan University (EMU)
    which facilitates the transfer of up to 84 credits toward the Bachelor of
    Science in Elementary Education at EMU. Courses included on this guide can
    be completed at either the LCC downtown or Livingston Center campus. This 
    articulated agreement is in effect until January 1, 2016.

    allowing students to simultaneously earn an Associate in Arts degree while 
    preparing to transfer to Eastern Michigan University. Completion of this 
    transfer guide satisfies both the MACRAO Transfer Agreement and the LCC 
    Associate in Arts in Education degree.

    To use MACRAO, students must request an official community college transcript,
    with the "MACRAO Satisfied" stamp, be sent to the EMU Admissions Office.
    Students, who do not have "MACRAO Satisfied" on their community college
    transcript, will be required to satisfy EMU's General Education Requirements
    as listed in the Undergraduate Catalog. The MACRAO stamp may be completed
    after admission to EMU, however, students should inform advisors at EMU
    that they intend to complete additional courses for the general education

    university level. At least 9 hours in the major and 6 hours in the minor at

    hours prior to graduation, at least 10 hours must be completed in courses

    articulation guide on their application and bring a copy of the articulation
