The TruMACC Transition Program is a joint admission effort between Moberly Area Community College and Truman State University.
Students are co-enrolled at both MACC and Truman, allowing them to enjoy the 4-year university experience while taking advantage of the affordability and diverse levels of academic preparation found at a 2-year institution. TruMACC is a highly collaborative program with academic advisors, faculty and staff at MACC and Truman working together to facilitate student success.
Students may enter the TruMACC Transition Program from a variety of avenues:
- Fully admitted to Truman but prefer to initially attend a community college
- Admitted to Truman contingent upon successful completion of the TruMACC program
- Admitted to or attending MACC and referred to the TruMACC program by an MACC advisor.
TruMACC students are enrolled full-time between both institutions (9-12 credit hours at MACC and 3-6 credit hours at Truman State University). Minimum progress requirements include a cumulative combined 2.75 grade point average with no grade lower than a C. Although formal application for transfer admission to Truman can occur after completion of 12 credit hours, earning the Associate of Arts degree or 60 credit hours with a 2.75 qualifies the TruMACC student for automatic admission to Truman. Students who do not meet TruMACC requirements are subject to the institutional requirements of the two institutions. TruMACC students are assessed the appropriate tuition, housing, and required fees at the respective institution.
TruMACC students must apply as a degree-seeking student at either Truman or MACC. The Truman application for admission and TruMACC supplement must be completed to enter the TruMACC Transition Program via Truman State University. Students fully admitted to Truman may opt into the TruMACC program or some students may be admitted to Truman contingent upon completion of the TruMACC program.
Students who meet the following GPA and ACT/SAT score guidelines will be given the strongest consideration for admission to the TruMACC program. If a student who is interested in the program falls below these guidelines, they may receive consideration by submitting the counselor/teacher report form to provide insights into characteristics that might indicate potential for success beyond GPA and standardized test scores. In all cases, transcripts will be carefully reviewed and the number of C’s, D’s and F’s in core academic courses will weigh heavily in the decision about program admission.
|Cumulative HS GPA||Minimum ACT|
|2.75 - 2.99||22|
|3.00 - 3.24||20|
|3.25 or higher||18|
