Transferring HFCC Credits To Other Colleges & Universities
This service assists students with the selection of courses taught at HFCC which will transfer to other colleges and universities. The following resources are available.
Transfer Guides are the outlines of classes that students intending to transfer to a four-year institution should follow. Each transfer institution typically has a Transfer Guide for specific majors; and it also has Transfer Guides for those students who may be undecided or are planning to transfer in a Liberal Arts direction. HFCC Counselors are available to help all students interpret the Transfer Guides as well as select or narrow down the choices of a transfer institution. HFCC’s University Transfer, Advising, and Career Counseling Center currently has Transfer Guides on “hard copy” of the major institutions in Michigan. Below are the transfer institutions that currently have their Transfer Guides available “online.” Select the transfer institution below and then select the program (Transfer Guide) that you wish to see. These Transfer Guides are in a format which allows you to print a hard copy exactly as it appears in our office. As additional institutions make the Transfer Guides available, they will also appear as links.
