Michigan Transfer Pathways

St. Clair County Community College joins with all the community colleges across the state to create easy-to-understand pathways for students transferring credit to a four-year college or university.

MiTransfer Pathways is a collaboration between community colleges and universities. It is a simplified process and allows community college students to apply every credit to four-year college and universities in specific programs.
