Transferring credits to NMC to get easier


Transferring credits to NMC to get easier

The process of transferring credits from some of the state's four-year universities back to Northwestern Michigan College is about to get much easier.

NMC was supposed to sign formal agreements with seven state universities today for what's called a "reverse transfer," but the ceremony was postponed due to an expected snowstorm, said NMC spokesman Andy Dolan.

Student requests for reverse transfers are increasingly common, and the new agreement will make the process much easier, Dolan said.

"Say you're a student at NMC and have been there for a while, and you transfer to Central Michigan before you finish your associate's degree or a certificate," Dolan said. "This agreement means that Central will transfer the credits back to us, and we grant you your associate's degree. That's why it's a reverse transfer."

The ceremony has yet to be rescheduled, but is expected to include officials from seven universities, including CMU, Davenport University, Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, Michigan State University, Western Michigan University, and Northern Michigan University.
