Bridge and Transfer

Attending MTC first can save you thousands of dollars and offers the same high-quality education as more expensive schools. Your community college credits will transfer easily to any college or university you choose.

MTC Bridge Programs

MTC's Bridge Program provides opportunities for students to successfully transfer to selected four-year colleges and universities. Bridge students are linked to their transition college early in their coursework at MTC, and they are provided a clear pathway and supportive activities which enhance transfer success.

MTC Transfer Programs

​​MTC Transfer Programs are partnerships between four-year colleges and universities and MTC’s Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) degree programs. It's easy to transfer course credits to many excellent in-and out-of-state colleges and universities. We even have dedicated advisors who can help make sure you're taking the right courses for your major.

MTC Articulation Agreements 

MTC articulation agreements are partnerships between certain four-year colleges and universities and certain MTC academic career programs. You’ll be given clear pathways and supportive activities that enhance your transfer success. To choose an articulation agreement, talk to your advisor in your academic career program about the college or university you want to attend.

Reverse Transfer

Get recognized for your accomplishments!  Reverse transfer allows you to complete your Midlands Technical College associate degree after transferring.

You may be like many college students who have earned academic credit from MTC and transferred it to a four-year college or university before receiving an associate degree. Now you have the opportunity to put “reverse transfer” credits earned at your four-year institution towards both your associate and bachelor’s degree!
Credits you earn at the four-year college or university are credited back to MTC to fulfill your MTC degree requirements. This transfer of credits does not interfere with the progress you are making towards a bachelor’s degree.

Why is an associate degree important?

An associate degree is an important milestone in your education as well as a valuable credential to have on your resume. Employers recognize this degree as evidence of your commitment to achieving your educational goals. The associate degree is the nation’s fastest growing academic credential and it can open the door to better job opportunities even while you are still working towards your bachelor’s degree.
