MACRAO Transfer Agreement

The Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) has established the MACRAO Transfer Agreement, which offers transferability of up to 30 semester credit hours to meet many (and in some case all) of the General Education Requirements at participating Michigan four-year colleges and universities. Henry Ford College students may take the MACRAO Transfer Agreement Courses as part of an associate degree or stand-alone package.

Completing the MACRAO Transfer Agreement

In order to complete the MACRAO Transfer Agreement, HFC students must take 30 semester credit hours of 100-level and above college coursework, in the following areas:

Course Credit Hours
*ENG 131 and ENG 132: English Composition 6
Humanities (courses other than English composition) 8
Science and Mathematics (including at least one laboratory course) 8
Social Science 8
Total Credit Hours 30

*Please note ENG 131 and ENG 135 are accepted by some MACRAO colleges and universities. Students should check the transfer guides available in the University Transfer, Advising, and Career Counseling Center.

Students who started before fall 2014 are able to complete the existing MACRAO Agreement until the end of summer 2019. The Michigan Transfer Agreement will take effect for students who began their studies in the fall 2014 semester.

Students interested in applying for the MACRAO Transfer Agreement should complete the MACRAO Certification Request Form.
