Minnesota State Transfer Pathways

Transfer Pathways make it easy to complete a specific associate degree at a Minnesota State college and transfer to a Minnesota State university to earn a bachelor's degree! It's an easy way to save time and money - without losing credits or taking extra courses - along with the flexibility to attend classes on campus or online. Plus, Minnesota State is a leading and accredited provider of higher education at the most affordable tuition rate in the state.

How does it work?

If you complete a Transfer Pathways program at a Minnesota State college and are admitted to a Minnesota State university, you will be guaranteed junior status and all 60 associate degree credits will count toward the related bachelor’s degree. Students must meet special admission requirements for the major and are not guaranteed admission into the major itself.

It is highly recommended that students interested in this possibility contact their intended transfer school, advisor/counselor, and program instructors for academic planning assistance.
