1.  This transfer guide supports an Articulation (partnership) Agreement between
    Lansing Community College (LCC) and Ferris State University (Ferris). It 
    facilitates the transfer of LCC students, who have completed or are 
    completing an LCC Associate Degree, into the Ferris Bachelor of Applied 
    Science degree in Digital Animation and Game Design (DAGD). The BAS/DAGD is 
    designed as a multidisciplinary degree. This articulated agreement expired 
    March 1, 2013. Contact David Baker at (616) 451-4777 or
    for further information.
2.  See the MACRAO Transfer Agreement for appropriate LCC courses.  Final 
    responsibility for verifying all transfer information lies with the student.
2.  Students transferring to FSU may meet the FSU General Education Requirements
    with a 2.5 cumulative GPA or complete the MACRAO Transfer Agreement, with 
    the MACRAO Stamp on their transcript and a 2.5 cumulative GPA prior to 
3.  The MACRAO Transfer Agreement applies only to students entering bachelor
    degree programs at FSU, pertains solely to general education, and does 
    not exempt students from meeting specific prerequisite and/or course
    requirements for their degree. Only courses with a grade of "C" (2.0)
    or better will transfer.  
4.  Students transferring to Ferris State University with MACRAO will have
    met the lower-division general education communication competency; 
    scientific understanding; cultural enrichment; social awareness; race, 
    ethnicity, and gender; and global awareness requirements. In order to 
    complete the general education requirements for a bachelor's degree, 
    students with MACRAO must still complete math proficiency and upper-
    level communication competency requirements.
5.  Many degrees require specific courses and prerequisite courses that also 
    count for FSU's general education requirements. Because these specific 
    courses are required for the degree, they must be taken even if a 
    student has sufficient coursework to complete the MACRAO agreement.  
6.  It is expected that the students entering this technology intensive program 
    already have solid foundation skills in dealing with personal computers.  
    Individuals are encouraged to enter the program as a first-year student and 
    be dually enrolled with LCC. Dual enrollment requires a student to be admitted
    to LCC and register there for the appropriated FSU-Equivalent courses in this
    degree. Once accepted into the program, students are expected to enroll in 
    FSU's Digital Animation courses.  
7.  Students interested in the degree should set up an advising appointment with 
    the DAGD advisor. Financial aid is available for dually enrolled students.  
    Contact the Ferris financial aid counselors for more information.
8.  FSU Admission Requirements: Transfer students with 29 credit hours or less 
    must possess a high school grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) and 
    a ACT composite score of 17. Transfer students with 30 credits hours or more
    must posses a 2.5 cumulative GPA. The DABD program requires a student port-
    folio as part of the admission process.
9.  FSU Bachelor Degree Graduation Requirements:
    a. Graduation requires a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA in all courses and a
       2.50 cumulative GPA in required DAGD classes.
    b. 30 minimum FSU semester hours must be completed to fulfill FSU residency
    c. 124 credit hours must be completed for graduation.
10. Students seeking an LCC associate degree must fulfill specific graduation
    requirements. See the LCC Catalog for details.
11. This transfer guide requires basic skill levels in mathematics, reading, and 
    writing. To determine accurate course placement, students should take the 
    Computerized Placement Tests in the LCC Assessment Center (GB 200) prior to
    registration. For testing hours call (517) 267-5500.
