HFC_transfer_agreementHFC recently signed a transfer agreement with the University of Michigan-Dearborn (UM-Dearborn) where students can transfer their credits toward an undergraduate degree in Engineering to UM-Dearborn.

“We’re very excited about this agreement between HFC and UM-Dearborn. It’s a logical progression that students wishing to study engineering at UM-Dearborn can transfer their credits seamlessly. This is a remarkable opportunity and a win-win situation for our students. UM-Dearborn is next door, so students don’t have to travel far, making it very convenient,” said HFC President Dr. Stan Jensen.

This engineering transfer agreement enables students to begin their education at HFC and earn an associate degree. They can then transfer to UM-Dearborn and complete their studies toward a designated undergraduate degree in engineering – including Bioengineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Robotics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial & Systems Engineering, and Manufacturing Engineering. A maximum of 72 credits will transfer to UM-Dearborn.

UM-Dearborn engineering students are eligible to participate in its Cooperative Education Program (Co-Op). HFC students who transfer to UM-Dearborn will be indiscriminately considered for this opportunity as well.

“This articulation agreement provides an excellent pathway to success for our students,” said Janice Gilliland, HFC associate dean of the Math and Science Division.
