Transfer Admission Policies

A transfer student is an applicant who graduated from high school and has previously enrolled at another post-secondary institution. There are two types of transfer students: Standard Transfers (less than 26 completed college credits) and Advanced Standing Transfers (26 or more completed college credits).

Standard Transfers (less than 26 completed college credits) primary admission factors:

  • College academic performance (based upon college transcript(s))
  • High school academic performance (based upon high school transcript)
  • ACT/SAT scores

Advanced Standing Transfers (26 or more completed college credits) primary admission factors:

  • College academic performance (based upon college transcript(s))

All transfer students must meet or exceed the following requirements:

  • Minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.0 (Some majors have higher requirements)
  • Successful completion of at least 75% of all attempted college coursework

Applicants to the online psychology major must have completed an associate of arts degree or the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC).
