100+ Transfer Agreements

Transfer Articulation Agreements
FMCC has entered into transfer articulation agreements with several public and private colleges and universities. An articulation agreement is a detailed sequence of coursework that has been pre-approved by the transfer institution. These agreements ensure transfer of FMCC courses, allowing the student to automatically enter the 4 year college as a junior.
