Upon surveying our transfer students, MICUP-BEAT staff has found that affordability is often a key to success.  We also found that our transfer students are hard workers deserving of a Bachelor’s degree.  To support transfer students’ hard work and dedication, and increase the affordability of their time at EMU, MICUP-BEAT is offering a one-time, three-credit tuition waiver for qualifying students.

MICUP-BEAT services are available to you year-round and your academic success is our primary goal.
