MICHIGAN TRANSFER AGREEMENT (MTA)  https://www.macrao.org/mcm.asp?floor=4

Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College is a signatory of the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA), which facilitates transfer of general education requirements between Michigan colleges and universities. Students may complete the MTA requirements as part of their degree programs or as a stand-alone set of courses. To satisfy MTA requirements, students must complete at least 30 credits of general education courses and must earn a grade of 2.0 or higher in each course. Courses transferred from other colleges may be counted toward the requirements as well as courses completed here. The College’s general education requirements will fulfill nearly all the MTA requirements, as shown in the following table.
