About Transfer Guides

Through collaborative partnerships with community colleges, Ferris State University has established program transfer guides to help students transfer smoothly from their community colleges to FSU. Students utilize a transfer guide when they plan on transferring from one institution to another. Students follow the transfer guide to take specific classes that will fulfill degree requirements at both of the postsecondary institutions.

Institutional Agreements

You can find details on the agreements Ferris has with each institution by visiting their transfer guide page.

Institutional Partnership Agreement

Builds upon and furthers the cooperation between our community college partners and Ferris State University. The agreement was developed as a collaborative effort between the two institutions and establishes guiding principles for the community college and Ferris partnership and emphasizes our willingness to work together to prepare students for successful careers, responsible citizenship, and lifelong learning.

Transfer Articulation Agreement

A formal cooperative signed document between two postsecondary institutions. The articulation agreement outlines specific guidelines for a seamless transfer from one institution to the other. The agreement also states specific criteria that a student must complete in order to transfer courses from one institution to the other. Students use articulation agreements to assure that the courses they complete will not have to be repeated at the institution to which they are transferring. The original signed agreement is on file in the Office of Transfer and Secondary School Partnerships.

Pre-Professional Programs

The Colleges of Pharmacy and Optometry maintain information specific to these programs on their web pages.
