Insider tips for an easy transfer
- 60+ Programs = Your full associate degree applies to a qualifying DU degree leaving only 60+ credits to complete (2 years or less)
- Follow a 3+1 for maximum transfer benefits. Work directly with your personal Education Partner Representative to map out your plan.
- Choose ENG 100 and MATH 104 at Montcalm CC to satisfy the DU English & math acceptance requirements (and maximize your transfer credits)
- You can take DU and Montcalm CC classes in the same semester with Consortium. Use DU financial aid to help cover the cost of both. A great option to help you complete your Associate degree requirements while you step forward to your Bachelor's degree.

"From the moment I submitted my application, I knew Davenport was going to be beneficial... It was a very important decision I had to make for my future. Davenport even helps you receive a job after graduation if you don't find one... I am currently pursuing a BBA, and the professors are wonderful and beyond helpful, as well as the staff on campus. I take classes online and at Davenport's Holland Campus. The option of taking 7-week classes is great if you're trying to knock classes out (quickly). My first semester here has been great!"
