All those small items you need to take care of before you become a Golden Eagle. 

Submit Final Transcripts

Admission to UMN Crookston is provisional until a final, official high school transcript reflecting graduation has been submitted and reviewed. To avoid possible delays or holds on your financial aid or course registration, submit final transcripts by July 1 for a fall semester start or January 2 for a spring semester start.

If you completed college-level work prior to high school graduation, be sure to submit all official transcripts to be reviewed for advanced-standing credit.

Request your FINAL OFFICIAL transcripts to be mailed to:

Office of Admissions 2900 University Ave. Crookston, MN 56716

Complete Health Requirements

Submit the Medical History form that was sent to your email.

Minnesota law requires all students born after December 31, 1956, who are enrolled in a Minnesota public or private college or university to be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella. You are legally required to provide this information. Anyone who fails to submit this information within 45 days after beginning classes cannot remain enrolled.

The University of Minnesota Board of Regents requires all students who register for six or more credits to have hospitalization insurance. You will be asked to show proof of health insurance by presenting your insurance policy name, policy number, and policy phone number. If you do not have health insurance, you will automatically be charged for University sponsored insurance. For more information visit, immunizations and health services.

You can take care of this step any time before you enroll; many students bring health records with them to Summer Orientation.
