MiTransfer Pathways Anticipated Timeline - Phase I (2018-2019)

Phase I of the project is convening faculty in four programs on May 18, 2018 including:

  • Biology/ Biological Sciences

  • Business Administration

  • Criminal Justice

  • Psychology

The timeline below outlines the expected milestones in this project. 

Identify and orient participating faculty members (Winter/Spring 2018)

Academic leaders on campuses across Michigan have designated institutional transfer liaisons as well as faculty designees in Phase I pathways (business, biological sciences, criminal justice, and psychology). With input from a representative team of institutional experts, project staff have developed and loaded orientation materials for participating faculty and staff online at

MiTransfer Pathways Faculty Summit I (May 18, 2018)

On May 18, 2018, the first MiTransfer Pathways Summit will be held in which designated faculty will work collaboratively across the discipline to begin to identify a set of courses common in the first two years of the program that will fulfill both associate and bachelor’s degree requirements and transfer easily between participating institutions.


Intermediary work (Summer and Fall 2018)

Between convenings in the spring and fall, faculty will update direct equivalencies for transfer courses and develop program plans with the support of transfer liaison as the work to develop the statewide agreements advances.


MiTransfer Pathways Faculty Summit II (Fall 2018)

During these meetings, faculty groups will finalize the recommended program requirements of the statewide agreement for their program of study and discuss other non-course program requirements.


Articulation agreement development (Fall 2018 -Fall 2019)

Institutions will make adjustments necessary to execute their participation in the statewide agreements and prepare for Fall 2019 signing.


Articulation agreement signing  (Anticipated Fall 2019)

We anticipate that the Phase I MiTransfer Pathways agreements will be signed and implemented after Fall 2019.
