Checking out some 4-year colleges/universities? Some questions you might want to ask:

  • How many credits are required to complete my transfer application?
  • Do I need to declare a major when I apply?
  • If I transfer in the middle of the academic year, will that affect my federal student loan eligibility? 
  • What types of internships are available?

Download a list of questions you should review before meeting with your transfer college rep.

Are you transferring to one of the state colleges or universities in Minnesota?

If you’re in one of SCTCC’s technical or professional programs – an AAS or AS – an articulation agreement means the classes you take for that program can transfer from SCTCC to a university toward a specific major.

For example, the architecture program at SCTCC has an articulation agreement with Minnesota State University Moorhead for their Construction Management bachelor’s degree. MSUM accepts architecture classes on top of any general education classes from SCTCC to count toward the bachelor’s degree.

The Minnesota Transfer website can help you figure out which SCTCC programs have articulation agreements with which universities or four-year colleges in Minnesota.

What if you’re planning on transferring to a college in a different state? And sometimes your classes can transfer even without an articulation agreement.

Use Transferology to find out how your credits will transfer - you will also get program info, course descriptions, and equivalent courses at other schools.

Another thing Transferology will do for you is figure out if credits will transfer back to your school. For instance, if you want to take a summer class at a college closer to home, it will tell you which class you need to take that will match what you need at the college you’re attending.
