About the MTA

The Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) is an agreement between all community colleges in Michigan, its 15 public universities, and a number of other institutions. The MTA is a 30-credit block of transferrable credits that count primarily toward general education requirements. MTA credits are included in most of Mid's transfer degrees as well. Upon successfully completing MTA requirements, your Mid Michigan College transcript will feature an MTA Endorsement.

General Education

What is General Education?

“Why do I have to take courses that don’t apply to my major?” is a question you might ask.

Where major requirements are intended to provide you with a depth of knowledge in a specified field of study, general education requirements are intended to provide a breadth of knowledge. General education is crucial to developing soft skills like communication, writing, critical thinking, problem solving, and a global understanding of the world.
