Beginning Your Journey to a Bachelor's Degree

North Central offers four associate degree programs for students who will transfer to another institute of higher education: the Associate of Applied Science, Associate of Arts, Associate of Science and Associate of General Studies. Learn more about individual transfer information here.





North Central has great transfer assurance between colleges, along with comprehensive and beneficial curriculum guides. It may be beneficial to visit, a handy tool that will help you verify the transferability of courses. This website is maintained by the Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) and has intuitive navigation. Participating colleges and universities post online transfer guides to the MACRAO site.

North Central students who plan to transfer to an institution of higher education should begin their academic journey with an academic advisor/counselor from North Central or an admissions advisor from the university or college they hope to attend. 

This catalog contains transfer suggestions which students may find helpful when selecting courses that are best suited to their bachelor's degrees at other institutions. North Central's transfer catalog should not be considered a replacement for transfer guides from the senior institutions.
