Michigan Transfer Agreement at HFCC April 23

Effective fall 2014, the Michigan Transfer Agreement will replace the current Michigan Association of Collegiate and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) at HFCC.

To help better understand the MTA and how it relates to transfer to four-year institutions, the HFCC Counseling and Advising Division will host an MTA training event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 23, in the Community Room of the Welcome Center. Eastern Michigan University (EMU) and the University of Michigan-Dearborn, two of HFCC’s main transfer universities, will present this event.

In 2012, the Michigan legislature included language in the community college appropriations bill that focused on improving the transferability of core college courses by revising the current MACRAO agreement. As a result, a new title was created under the MTA to replace the MACRAO.

The MTA training event is free and open to the public. To register and/or further information, please call Imad Nouri at 313.845.9750 or register for the event at
