Student Services

Transfer Services

Below is a list of courses eligible for each of the 10 MnTC goal areas. See MCTC Policy 3.05 for additional information regarding this curriculum.

See Associate in Arts Degree for specific MnTC goal area requirements.

To be eligible for an AA, AS, AAS or AFA degree from MCTC, students must earn a minimum of 20 college level semester credits at MCTC. This requirement is reduced to 12 credits for the AA degree when a student has transferred to MCTC from another institution within the Minnesota State Colleges and University system or from the University of Minnesota. At least one third of the credits for a diploma or certificate must be earned at MCTC.

All college level courses in which a student has received a grade of A, B, C, D or P/S will be considered for transfer evaluation. No F grade courses will be accepted. Transfer credit grades will not be used in computing a student's GPA at MCTC except for some special programs that require the calculation of GPA for application to the program, such as Nursing. Only earned transfer credits (not grade point credits or grade points) will be recorded on the official MCTC transcript.

Courses carrying a grades of “D” at the previous institution are acceptable if the cumulative GPA at the sending institution is 2.0 or higher or if the course has been previously awarded an MnTC Goal Area by another institution within the Minnesota State Colleges and University system.

MnTC Requirement: Grades of A, B, C, and D are accepted in the MnTC; however, a cumulative MnTC 2.0 GPA is required to complete the entire 40-credit, 10 goal area Minnesota Transfer Curriculum. Transfer credits are used to calculate the required GPA for the MnTC.

General education and elective credits have no transfer time limit. The timeliness of credits applied to career programs is considered when evaluating transfer credits. Technical career courses must be taken within the past five years to qualify for transfer and to fulfill technical program requirements.

Effective: 2014-2015
