Transfer plans for Michigan community colleges show you exactly which courses to take based on your planned major at GVSU. This helps ensure that you will be able to transfer the maximum number of credits when it's time to start classes at GVSU.

Course Equivalencies show you how courses from other colleges and universities transfer to GVSU. Once you apply for admission and send official transcripts, you will receive an official Transfer Credit Evaluation.

The Michigan Transfer Agreement is designed to help you transfer from your community college to a Michigan four-year college or university.

GVSU is proud to participate in the MiTransfer Pathways while continuing our support of Michigan transfer students.
