Transfer of Credits

If you have previous college credit, send us copies of your transcripts for an unofficial pre-evaluation by one of our academic advisors.

UMC will accept transfer coursework from regionally accredited community/junior colleges, technical colleges/institutes, proprietary technical colleges, business colleges, military schools, industry-based education programs, and similar post-secondary schools.

  • Previous coursework will be reviewed on an individual basis to determine transfer credits.
  • Students with a completed Associate degree will work with an academic adviser to determine additional courses required to complete a baccalaureate degree in a similar program.
  • Transfer students must complete a minimum of 30 semester credits (including the last 20 credits) and all major field requirements of the desired program at UMC.
  • Only courses with a grade of D or better earned will be considered to fulfill requirements in general education and academic major courses.
  • All courses not used to fulfill general education or major field requirements will be considered electives.
  • A transfer student's GPA will be calculated using only courses completed at UMC.

How and/or will my courses transfer?

Minnesota's public colleges and universities are working to make transferring easier. Plan ahead, ask questions, and use pathways created by transfer agreements. Refer to the Minnesota Transfer site for more information.

What are the admission requirements?

Admission decisions are based on an assessment of indicators for success at UMC.

  • High school coursework
  • Grade Point Average (minimum 2.0 or above preferred)
  • ACT/SAT test scores (minimum 21 ACT or SAT equivalent)
  • Other indicators of academic potential

Students who do not meet the minimum preferred requirements will be referred to the Admissions Committee for an admission decision. An insight resumePDF File Icon, if your cumulative grade point average (G.P.A) isn't at the minimum of 2.0, will allow the Admissions Committee a better understanding of a student’s perspective, contributions, qualifications, and diverse talents. Students with less than a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 will be asked to address their experience in each category keeping in mind how they could contribute to the future community of excellence at UMC. During this pre-evaluation stage you may consider submitting the insight resume as a supporting document for consideration during the official application stage.
