How Can I Transfer My Credits?

The transfer process can be complicated. These Minnesota resources can help you understand the transfer process and transfer your credits.

  • Transferology
    Transferology is a multi-state, web-based transfer tool which helps transfer students move from school to school and earn degrees in a timely manner.

Sometimes credits do not transfer from one school to another because of accreditation. Accreditation shows that a school's programs meet certain education quality standards. It is difficult to transfer credits from a non-accredited program. Before enrolling, ask the school if your program meets the accreditation requirements for your career pathway.

Most importantly, you should contact a transfer specialist at the school you would like to attend to get specific details about how your credits will transfer. Find a transfer specialist.
