Northwood University and Mid-Michigan College recently signed a new transfer articulation agreement.
“This transfer articulation agreement serves our mutual students by removing barriers to degree completion. It strengthens the relationship between Northwood and Mid-Michigan College and most importantly helps us serve the collective needs of our students,” stated Dr. Kristin Stehouwer, provost and vice president of academics at Northwood University.
Per the new agreement, students can study at Mid-Michigan College for three years and then transfer to Northwood to complete their degree on the following tracks: accounting, health care management, management, and management information systems.
“Beyond this agreement, Northwood and Mid both share a strong history of responding to the needs of our communities and providing access to an affordable education,” noted Tim Hood, president of Mid-Michigan College.
Known as transfer agreements, articulation agreements are formal partnerships between two or more colleges. These agreements make it easier for students to transfer to a partnering school without the worry of losing credits.
This isn’t the first transfer articulation agreement Northwood has signed. The university has other “3 + 1” agreements such as the one with Delta College, which lets students who plan to earn their bachelor of business administration degree to study at Delta College for three years before transferring to Northwood University in their fourth year.
Like the one in place with Delta, the agreement signed last week allows Mid-Michigan students to transfer to Northwood with greater ease.
