General Education Transfer Policy

Transfer Policy for Community College Students
(entering Fall 2005 and later) 

Students who transfer to Wayne State University from a Michigan community college with an Associate of Arts (A.A.), an Associate of Science (A.S.), an Associate of Baccalaureate Studies (A.B.S.), or an Associate of Liberal Arts (A.L.A.) degree are admitted with most lower division University general education requirements considered fulfilled.

Students who transfer to Wayne State University from a Michigan community college with a MACRAO-stamped transcript who do not hold an associate degree are also considered to have fulfilled most of the lower division University general education requirements.

After transfer to Wayne State University, students will then complete courses specific to the graduation requirements of their individual department or college. As always, students should contact a professional advisor at Wayne State University before transfer.

Please consult the General Education Transfer Policy frequently asked questions for terms, conditions, and exclusions.
