Many students attend Southwestern Michigan College to obtain the first two years of a baccalaureate degree prior to attending a four-year college or university.

An Associate in Arts or an Associate in Science degree from SMC also meets the general requirements for many four-year colleges and universities. Because core courses in the areas of communications, humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and natural sciences are fairly standard throughout the country, students are able to readily transfer their credits to in-state and out-of-state institutions.

SMC has transfer pathways from a number of Michigan and Indiana colleges and universities which are available online through the Transfer Advising Center.

If you don’t find a transfer pathways listed for the school you plan to transfer to, talk with your SMC advisor. Your advisor can assist you in using transfer pathways, assuring a smooth transition to the college or university of your choice.

Transfer Resource Services

Students can also access transfer school materials, work on their applications, meet with SMC and transfer school advisors, and plan their transfer in Transfer Resource Services located in Career Planning Center of the David C. Briegel Building.

Note: Southwestern Michigan College does its best to maintain accurate information in the transfer pathways and transfer equivalencies. As a result of continual change, final responsibility for successful transfer of classes suggested in these links rests with the student and communication with the transfer institution.
