Apply as a Transfer Student

Follow this application process if you have taken courses at another college and want to transfer to MCTC to complete a degree, diploma or certificate. 

Application Steps

  1. Apply online and pay the $20 application fee.
  2. Watch your email for your next steps and information about your acceptance into the college
  3. Send your previous college transcripts for transfer credits, testing exemptions, financial aid or veteran’s benefits. Transcripts will be reviewed in the order that they are received.
  4. Take the College’s placement tests unless you have already received a testing exemption.
  5. Review the transfer student Advising and Registration options and register for classes.   

Note: If you have been suspended from another college for academic or disciplinary reasons, you may need to appeal your admission. If you have a financial hold at a previous college or university, you will not be able to enroll in the college until the past due balance has been resolved.

As either a visiting or non-degree seeking student your goal is the same––to take a limited number of courses with no intent of completing a certificate, diploma or degree at MCTC.

The visiting student admission process might be more simple, but you may consider going through the application process as a transfer student and selecting “non-degree seeking student” as your status on the online application if you might take courses over multiple semesters, need a campus card for reduced parking rates, and if you want testing exemptions or access to services (health clinic, fitness center, transfer evaluations, advising, student life).

If you need help deciding which process would be best for you, please feel free to contact admissions at admissions.office@minneapolis.edu or 612-659-6282.
