Are you a student at Eastern Michigan University (EMU) who wants to transfer to another institution to complete your degree, but you’re not sure where to start? Look no further than EMU’s articulation agreement program.
An articulation agreement is a formal agreement between two or more colleges or universities that outlines how credits earned at one institution will be accepted at another institution. In other words, it’s a plan that helps you ensure that the coursework you complete at EMU will count towards your degree at another school. This is particularly helpful if you’re considering transferring to another institution that has more specialized programs or courses that EMU doesn’t offer.
EMU has articulation agreements with many institutions, including nearby community colleges and Michigan’s public universities. One such agreement is between EMU and the University of Michigan-Flint (UM-Flint).
The articulation agreement between EMU and UM-Flint is designed to help students who have completed an associate’s degree at a community college and are looking to continue their studies at a four-year institution. Under the agreement, students who have earned an associate’s degree in arts, science, or general studies from a participating community college can transfer up to 60 credits to UM-Flint towards a bachelor’s degree in their chosen field.
This agreement can save students time and money by allowing them to complete the first half of their degree at a community college, which is often less expensive than a four-year institution, before transferring to UM-Flint to finish their bachelor’s degree.
To take advantage of this articulation agreement, students must meet certain requirements, such as maintaining a minimum GPA and completing specific courses. It’s important to work closely with academic advisors at both institutions to ensure you’re on the right track to meet these requirements.
In addition to the UM-Flint agreement, EMU has many other articulation agreements with institutions across the state and country. To find out more about these agreements and how they can benefit you, speak with an academic advisor or visit EMU’s transfer student webpage.
In summary, if you’re an EMU student looking to transfer to another institution to complete your degree, consider taking advantage of the many articulation agreements that EMU has to offer. By doing so, you can save time and money while ensuring that the coursework you complete at EMU will count towards your degree at another institution.
