KCC announces online tool to simplify students’ transfer plans

Students work on laptops.

Kellogg Community College today announced that a new, user-friendly online resource is now available for students who want to transfer their postsecondary education credits from one institution to another.

Fresh upgrades to the Michigan Transfer Network were recently unveiled statewide at mitransfer.org, following nearly two years of development by Michigan’s community colleges, public universities and independent colleges and universities.

“Because many of our students come to KCC with the intention of later transferring to a university, it’s imperative that they know up front which courses transfer and exactly how many credits they’ll receive at their next institution,” said KCC President Mark O’Connell. “The new MiTransfer tool is simple to use and up-to-date, taking much of the guesswork out of the student’s educational planning.”

The new site, MiTransfer.org, allows students to search for courses, view information about the Michigan Transfer Agreement, and link to more information about transferring from and to institutions throughout Michigan.

The upgraded MiTransfer.org site will help outline the pathways to a degree for KCC students.

The project was funded through the state’s FY 2018 state budget, which included a one-time appropriation to support this statewide initiative under the collaborative leadership of the Michigan Community College Association, the Michigan Association of State Universities and the Michigan Independent Colleges and Universities, all based in Lansing. KCC is a member of the MCCA.

The new site, developed after extensive user input and stakeholder feedback, offers expanded information about course-to-course equivalency and how to complete Michigan’s general education transfer package, known as the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA). Explore the site at mitransfer.org and contact KCC for additional information.
