The MCTC campus will be closed May 28-30 for Memorial Day weekend.


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. 

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 or 612-659-6282.

Application steps

  1. Print your pre-enrollment checklist.
  2. Apply online and pay the $20 application fee.
  3. Send your previous college transcripts for transfer credits, financial aid or veteran’s benefits.
  4.  Study for and take the College’s placement tests or request a testing exemption.
  5. Watch your email for your next steps and information about your acceptance into the college.
  6. Review the transfer student orientation 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.

“The pendulum has swung” toward community colleges.

In this Star Tribune article, community colleges were recognized for offering an inexpensive, fast-track path to employment. Although once regarded as “the 13th grade,” popular opinion about community college has since changed.
