✪ This degree requires fulfillment of the Michigan Transfer Agreement General Education requirements. All courses used to fulfill the MTA must have a grade of “C” or higher.

@ Many courses require specific placement scores or prerequisite courses. Students not meeting the prerequisites for their required courses may need to take more time and more credits to fulfill the degree requirements.

* Students must choose courses in Social & Behavioral Sciences and Humanities, each from two different subject areas to meet MTA. See advisor for details.
** Students may take PHYS 205  & PHYS 206  as an alternative.

Actual courses and sequence vary with transfer institution and undergraduate degree specialization. It is in the student’s best interest to review transfer guides for specific university and program requirements. Students should regularly consult their transfer institution as well as their Bay College advisor prior to scheduling courses.

  • Students transferring to FSU Biotechnology program only need to complete MATH 140 , and are not required to complete PHYS 202 .
  • Due to credit transfer limits, students transferring to NMU are advised to complete either Organic Chemistry or Physics at NMU.

These students would be better served by completing the general AS degree.
