Transfer Bridges, University of Michigan

The Transfer Bridges program connects GRCC students with opportunities at U-M Ann Arbor to explore degrees, develop academic skills, build connections, and plan for their transfer experience.

What is Transfer Bridges? 

The Transfer Bridges program connects GRCC students to the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) at U-M Ann Arbor, offering GRCC students opportunities to engage and learn about the transfer experience while they study at GRCC.

Transfer Bridges will also host monthly events to support transfer exploration, including writing workshops, scholarship or college application support, campus visits, and community dinners. Check our calendar for more information.
