Current Student Resources

Step by
Make sure your path to an OU bachelor's degree is a smooth one. 

You are limited to the number of credits that can be completed at the community college and transferred to OU. That number is typically one-half the number of credits required for your specific bachelor's degree program. (If you're not sure how many credits are required for your program, look it up in the online catalog.) Below is a list of action items to complete at certain milestones. Take note that you should be seeing both an OU academic adviser and an adviser at the partner school for your first two years. 

First year (27 or fewer credit hours completed)
  • Prior to your first semester in college, attend new student orientation at OU — even if you don't plan to take classes here your first semester. 
  • Work with your assigned academic adviser in the First Year Advising Center along with an educational counselor/academic adviser at the community college to develop an academic plan.
Second year (28-55 credit hours completed)
  • Meet with an OU academic adviser within your area of study. Still undecided? Continue working with the First Year Advising Center until a major is decided upon. Discuss the following questions:
    • What are the GPA requirements for my major?
    • What are my program/degree requirements?
    • What major courses must be taken at Oakland University?
  • Discuss options like reverse transfer and the MACRAO agreement with your academic adviser/educational counselor at the community college.
40 or more credit hours completed
  • If you haven't done so already, meet with your OU academic adviser immediately to make a short-term plan to transition to Oakland University.
62 or more credit hours completed
  • If you have exceeded 62 credits at the community college, you are in danger of losing financial aid or of not receiving credit for your work over 62 credit hours.
If you no longer wish to participate in a community college partnership program, complete an  opt-out form . Deadlines for opting out of a community college partnership program are the same as admissions deadlines. 
  • Fall semester entry — by July 1
  • Winter semester entry — by October 1
  • Summer semester entry — by April 1
  • If you have a physical, psychological, sensory and/or learning disability, you can contact Macomb's Special Services Office for an appointment to discuss eligibility for services and accommodations. Services include captionists, FM equipment, interpreters, note takers and alternative testing arrangements.

Macomb Community College is one of the nation’s leading community colleges, providing learning experiences to more than 59,000 students annually. Macomb nationally ranks in the top two percent in the number of associate degrees awarded and as the largest grantor of associate degrees in Michigan. The college’s comprehensive educational programming includes pre-collegiate experiences, university transfer and career preparation programs, bachelor degree completion and graduate degree programs, workforce training, professional education and certification, and continuing education and enrichment opportunities. Excellence in teaching and learning is a key component of the College's Guiding Principles. Learning opportunities-courses, programs, and related activities-incorporate specific outcomes designed to prepare students for real-world experiences and employment challenges. Embedded in all courses are educational experiences that reinforce a student's understanding of technology, critical thinking, mathematics, communications, and globalization and diversity.

Mott Community College serves Genesee County and the surrounding community by creating high quality educational opportunities that strengthen the area's economy.

MCC works with area residents, labor, business, government and other educational institutions to make sure our curriculum complements employers' training needs while providing the most cost effective educational options in the area.

Our programs focus on university transfer, technical and lifelong learning, as well as workforce and economic development — that promote student success, individual development, and improve the overall quality of life in the multicultural community we serve.

Aside from the fact that MCC will cost you half of what you would pay at other colleges or universities, MCC (like other community colleges) is outcome-oriented, leading to either immediate career employment or transfer to a four-year university.

Students planning to go on to a four-year college or university can use a two-year arts and sciences program that leads to an associate of arts or associate of science degree that can transfer to a university.

MCC may also be the answer for students who are not yet ready either socially or academically — for a four-year college as your community college offers ability assessment, personal attention and academic preparation for college-level work.


  * must be enrolled in at least one OCC course to use for the semester
Oakland Community College is the largest community college in Michigan with campuses in Auburn Hills, Waterford, Farmington Hills, Royal Oak and Southfield. Although large, OCC offers smaller classes and student-centered instruction in more than 160 career programs. OCC boasts the lowest tuition rates in the state as well as an expert teaching staff in which nearly all full-time faculty possess advanced degrees.
