Transfer Credit Appeal Process
Transfer Credit Review, Transfer Credit Appeal, & System-Level Transfer Credit Appeal - PROCESS
Minneapolis College transfers previously completed college level course credits from other schools when students have been admitted to the college and official transcripts have been received in the Registration and Records Office. Official transcripts are evaluated in the order received. Evaluations are major/program specific. This means that you will be given transfer credit for coursework that is applicable to your declared program of study.
When a student disagrees with how Minneapolis College has evaluated the transferred course credits, the student can request to have them reviewed. The first step is to familiarize yourself with the Transfer Credit Evaluation process.
Level 2: Transfer Credit Appeal
If a transfer review request was completed and denied, you may submit a “Transfer Appeal” request. The purpose of this request is to give students the opportunity to request an additional level of review. At this stage, the transfer appeal is reviewed by the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
All documentation must be received from the student during this transfer appeal stage before a decision is made.
Before you submit a transfer appeal request, you should:
- Gather additional supporting documentation and course information to submit.
Syllabus or Course Outline (Must be from the semester the course was taken).
Submit a Transfer Appeal request: When a course is eligible for a transfer appeal, the Appeal button displays for the student to select to start an appeal from the Check Status form for the course.
- Log into your Minneapolis College student eServices account
- Click on ‘Academic Records’
- Select the Appeal button to open the entry form with the course information displaying.
- Supply the reason for the request and an explanation and follow the instructions.
If there is no change to how the course/credits were accepted and the student disagrees, the student can then submit a “System-Level Transfer Appeal”.
