LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Five Michigan community colleges are partnering on a pilot program to let students in automotive technology programs transfer among the schools without losing credits or having to repeat course work.

Delta College, Grand Rapids Community College, Lansing Community College, Montcalm Community and Mott Community Colleges have signed the agreement. It was announced Friday by Nigel Francis, the state’s senior automotive adviser.

He says the deal is a “stellar example” of collaborations needed to ensure Michigan has a talented and well-trained auto industry workforce.

State officials say their goal is for the program to be a model for other fields of study. They say community college students face barriers to finishing their education due to employment and life changes forcing them to move to other parts of Michigan.
