Types of Courses There are three (3) types of courses that may be used toward fulfilling associate degrees at Schoolcraft College:
  1. Liberal Arts L courses will typically transfer to another institution. They provide general knowledge and theory in the arts, language and communication, humanities, natural sciences, math and social sciences.
  2. Schoolcraft-only General Education courses are a set of Liberal Arts courses which provide general knowledge and application opportunities. Courses may or may not transfer to another institution.
  3. Occupational courses (BOLD) have a direct career relationship and focus on developing necessary knowledge and skills to enter the work force within the chosen field of study.
    Courses may or may not transfer to another institution. No SC occupational courses may be used toward SC General Education or to meet the requirements for MTA.
Occupational or Schoolcraft-only General Education courses may not account for more than 15 credits in this degree.
Courses that may transfer or be used toward fulfilling the requirements of general education at Schoolcraft College may be found on Schoolcraft College’s General Education and Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) list. While applied or occupational courses provide immediate skill-building opportunities, their transferability and value should be discussed with a counselor or academic advisor.
