Mississippi Articulation and Transfer Tool (known as MATT) was created to be a one-stop shop for transfer students, administrators, advisors and faculty.
MATT is designed to facilitate student transitions between and among Mississippi’s Institutions of Higher Learning and Community and Junior College systems. MATT displays detailed and up-to-date information on degree pathways and provides students with a streamlined way to access transfer agreements developed between public institutions in a searchable database. MATT enables students to compare current courses against equivalent courses at another institution and learn how those courses meet degree requirements for a specific major.
