College students often decide to transfer from one institution to another while completing a degree, and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities work together to make transferring easier. All 31 state colleges and universities are accredited and offer the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum, a package of general education courses accepted for transfer to the other state colleges and universities.
Plan ahead if you might want to transfer someday, and let your college advisor know. Some programs and courses are not designed for transfer, so be sure to ask before you register for classes.
Minnesota Transfer is a Web service that enables students and advisors to obtain consistent and accurate information about transfer. Each campus has transfer specialists to answer questions, help you with course selection and planning. Ask for the transfer specialist when you call or visit the admissions office. The transfer specialists’ names, along with other information about transferring, can be found at Minnesota Transfer.
