Transfer Planning

Transferring to Minnesota State College Southeast

Transfer students must request that an official post-secondary transcript be mailed directly to MSC Southeast from the sending institution.  

  • Note: If you are transferring from any college or university in the Minnesota State system, an electronic transcript will be received at MSC Southeast. 

MSC Southeast considers credits from all regionally and non-regionally accredited institutions. Course syllabi and other additional documentation may also be required for evaluation of courses for which a student is requesting transfer credit. 

It is the policy of MSC Southeast to provide students the ability to transfer credits from higher education institutions to meet program major requirements. The transfer of credit shall be accomplished in accordance with Minnesota State Board of Trustees policies.  

Transfer of technical credits is only granted for courses completed within the past five years. Some programs may have different technical credit requirements. There is no transfer time limit for general education or elective courses. Transfer credits being considered must have a grade of A, B, C, D, M (Mastery), P (Pass), or S (Satisfactory), and the completed coursework must match at least 75% of the content goals of the MSC Southeast course syllabus for which the student is seeking transfer credit. Questions about transfer of credits from another institution should be directed to the Registrar's Office. 

Transfer of Credit Review/ Appeal Process

If you want to have any courses or credits further reviewed, go to eServices, select Transfer Review/Appeal and follow the instructions. You may include additional supplemental information such as a course description, syllabus, course outline, or other course materials. The department and Dean of Academics will review the provided information within (10) days. You will receive an email with their decision. If you want to appeal their decision, return to eServices and complete the Transfer Appeal process. For more information, see Transfer Review/Appeal Process.
