Charting Your Path to a Bachelor's Degree

North Central offers three associate degree programs for students who plan to transfer to senior institutions: the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science and Associate of General Studies.





North Central has exceptional transfer assurance between colleges, along with curriculum guides. A helpful resource,, will help you to verify the transferability of courses. This website is maintained by the Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) and is simple to navigate. Participating colleges and universities post online transfer guides on the MACRAO site.

North Central students who expect to transfer to an institution of senior status should plan their programs of study with the help of a North Central academic advisor or counselor and an admissions advisor from the college or university they would like to attend.

Transfer suggestions are contained within this catalog to help students choose courses that they may apply toward their bachelor's degrees at other institutions. These should not be considered a replacement for transfer guides from the senior institutions.
