Transfer Credit Opportunity


What is an "Articulation Agreement"?

Articulation agreements can help you transfer credits from one school to another, making it faster, and more cost-effective to earn your degree. They make it so you don’t have to repeat things you have already learned. One of the ways schools transfer these credits is through articulation agreements with other colleges and universities.  Knowing how these agreements work can help you make sure you’re able to transfer as many credits as possible towards your degree.

Utah Valley University (UVU) Articulation Agreements  

MTECH and UVU partner to ensure students move seamlessly from MTECH into degree programs.  There are two ways this can happen:  

  • The R473 Articulation Agreement

This makes MTECH students eligible to earn 30 Hours of credit towards an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Applied Technology at Utah Valley University, after they have completed an MTECH Program that is at least 900 hours long.

30 hours of credit is almost half the work for an Associate’s Degree!

Automated Manufacturing Mobile Development
Automotive Technology Practical Nursing
Cosmetology Precision Machining
Diesel Technology Surgical Technology
Hair Design Web Programming & Development

  • UVU Course to Course Articulations

MTECH and UVU have individual agreements for MTECH Programs to count towards specific courses at UVU.  They enable students to earn credits in the field they are most interested in.
