Transfer Credits to Minneapolis College

Transfer evaluations at Minneapolis College are major or program specific. This means that you will be given transfer credit for classes that are applicable to your selected major or program. If you change your major or program, and believe that a new evaluation is necessary, you must notify the Registration and Records Office. Once the transfer of credit evaluation has been completed you will receive an email notification to your college email directing you to view your degree audit in eServices. Only official transcripts will be evaluated for transfer of credit.

Financial Aid

Apply for financial aid as soon as you apply to the College.

Transfer Student Admissions Appeal

If you are currently on suspension from a previous college or university, you will need to complete a Transfer Suspension Appeal for review after you submit your application to the college.
