Transfer plans

Transfer plans lay out specific courses community college students can take that may count toward general education and specific program requirements at Wayne State University. Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare to transfer to WSU:

  • No more than 64 credits from a two-year school will apply toward a Wayne State University degree, though all courses taken will be listed on the Wayne State University student record. If you are following an articulation agreement, more than 64 credits may transfer.
  • We strongly recommend that you use transfer plans in conjunction with consulting a WSU advisor to ensure a smooth transition to WSU. You can do so by making an appointment here, or contact the Transfer Student Success Center at 313-577-2487 for further assistance.

One of the main areas of focus for transfer students is General Education Requirements. These are classes in addition to courses within your major that are required to ensure fundamental skills and a well-rounded education. There are three ways that transfer students can meet these requirements:

  1. Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) - see your community college below for specific MTA information and MTA qualified courses.
  2. MACRAO Agreement
  3. By fulfilling direct course equivalencies for each general education requirement - varied by program/college.
