All credits transferred from Monroe County Community College shall be placed into the student's academic program at The University of Toledo College of Business Administration in accordance with the scheme of course classification in effect at The University of Toledo College of Business Administration for native students (i.e. core or general curriculum, major fields, free electives, etc.).

5. Students transferring from Monroe County Community College to The University of Toledo College Business Administration prior to completion of the associate degree will have their credits and courses evaluated on a course-by-course basis as to their acceptability and application to core and/or general education/liberal arts requirements for the Bachelor of Business Administration at The University of Toledo College Business Administration.
