Why the number 82 is so valuable to EMU transfer students

by blogemu

Here’s a fun fact that could save you thousands of dollars: Students transferring to EMU’s College of Business can bring with them up to 82 credits from a community college.


That’s two-thirds the number of credits needed to graduate! You can do most of your work at a community college where tuition costs less, and still walk out of Eastern Michigan University with a degree from what The Princeton Review has identified as one of the country’s best business schools.


EMU’s College of Business has unique articulation agreements with community colleges throughout Michigan and Ohio to allow so many transfer credits. You can complete not only all of the general education requirements for a bachelor’s degree while at a community college, but also begin work on your business major. Those classes will count toward an EMU degree in finance, accounting or any number of other hot business majors.


Eastern Michigan University has been named one of the best business schools by The Princeton Review.

It’s important to meet with an advisor right away to let them know you want to transfer to EMU. That way you can make a plan and be sure that the classes you take in community college follow the requirements of the agreement between your school and EMU.


The more credits that transfer to EMU, the more money you save. That can reduce your amount of student loans, put extra money in your pocket or even give you a good jump on financing a master’s degree that could boost your future earning power even higher.
