Manchester University is excited to announce a new initiative and pathway for transfer students that will more fully recognize and value their prior academic achievements.

Starting spring 2024, Manchester University will allow students with a 2-year associate degree in arts or sciences to transfer to MU by accepting their degree as a block of 60 credits and fulfilling all general education requirements. This initiative is a significant step forward toward improving access for transfer students to a powerful and enriching learning experience at Manchester University.

For students who have completed an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Sciences (AS) degree, Manchester University becomes an attractive option for pursuing their 4-year degree and beyond. Many transfer students will now be able to transfer to Manchester and complete their bachelor's degree within two years.

"We are thrilled to offer this opportunity to transfer students who have completed their AA or AS degrees. Manchester University recognizes the value of their prior academic work and is dedicated to providing a smooth and supportive transition into our learning community," said Celia Cook-Huffman, vice president for academic affairs at Manchester University.

By considering liberal arts requirements completed for students transferring with an accredited Associate of Arts or Sciences degree, Manchester University aims to cater to the evolving needs of a growing student population. This decision reflects the University's commitment to accessibility and inclusivity in higher education and supports their mission to respect the infinite worth of every individual and graduate persons of ability and conviction.

"We believe that creating this pathway not only enhances the educational experience for transfer students but also contributes to our broader mission of creating inclusive pathways to serve the diverse needs of students locally, regionally and nationally," added Cook-Huffman.

Prospective transfer students are encouraged to explore this new opportunity by contacting the office of undergraduate admissions at admitinfo@remedioscaseros12.com or visit remedioscaseros12.com.
