Prior Approval for Transfer Credit

Students may complete some requirements or electives at institutions other than MICA; however, approval to transfer credits back to MICA to satisfy degree requirements must be obtained prior to the student attempting  enrollment at another institution. For example,  a student may want to take a biology course at an instutution in their home-town while on summer break to satisfy MICA's science requirement. Without completing the Prior Approval for Transfer Credit, the course may not be allowed to transfer; thus, causing the student to repeat efforts.

Completed forms should be submitted to the student's assigned Academic Advisor or the Office of Enrollment Services.
