1. This transfer guide supports an Articulation (partnership) Agreement between
   Lansing Community College (LCC) and Ferris State University (FSU) which 
   facilitates the transfer of LCC students, who have completed or are completing
   an LCC Associate Degree in Business Administration (0243), into the FSU 
   Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program. This articulated
   agreement does not have a specific expiration date.   
2. See the MACRAO Transfer Agreement for appropriate LCC course options. Final
   responsibility for verifying all transfer information lies with the student.
3. Students must satisfy the FSU Global Consciousness and Race/Ethnicity/Gender
   general education requirements if the MACRAO stamp is not on their transcript.
4. Admission requirements for transfer students:
   a. To be considered for Financial Aid from Ferris, students must have earned
      an associate degree or have earned 48 transferable credit hours.
   b. Students must have a 2.35 GPA or better in all transfer courses.
5. This program and the Ferris courses are offered to students at the following
   a. Fully online
   b. Ferris State University, Big Rapids Campus
   c. Select courses delivered online and/or in a mixed delivery format (i.e. a
   mix of online and face-to-face instruction at either LCC, the Ferris main
   campus, or at another off-campus location)
6. Orientation is required for students who elect to complete the degree fully
   online. In addition, any student who registers for a fully online course must
   first demonstrate competency in Ferris Connect Skills. This may be done by
   taking a tutorial and quiz, or by submitting a waiver request (for those who
   have already taken and passed online courses). First check with the department
   that offers the class to determine their particular needs regarding
   registration for online course work.
7. It is recommended that potential applicants meet with an advisor to review the
   program and course schedule and have any questions answered prior to completing
   an application. Students who are completing the MACRAO Stamp may have
   different general education course requirements. Meeting with a Ferris advisor
   prior to the selection of any electives or general education classes could
   reduce the chance of completing a course that will not transfer or apply toward
   the degree.  Once admitted, students continue to meet with an advisor as they
   work toward graduation.
8. Students seeking an LCC associate degree must fulfill specific graduation
   requirements. See the LCC Catalog for details.
9. This transfer guide requires basic skill levels in mathematics, reading, and 
   writing. To determine accurate course placement, students should take the 
   Computerized Placement Tests in the LCC Assessment Center (GB 200) prior to
   registration. For testing hours call (517) 267-5500.
For further information and advising, contact the FSU Advisor at the LCC
University Center, at (517) 483-9723 or; or Dr. David
Steenstra, FSU Management Department at (231) 591-2420 or; or
