2. Submit transcripts and Test Scores

Transfer students who have taken college-level coursework at a regionally accredited college or university may have already satisfied some or all course placement requirements. Also, score reports for any ACT, SAT and MCA may help to determine your course placements.

For Minnesota State Schools: Our admission staff can obtain Minnesota State transcripts electronically on your behalf.

For All Other Schools: Request official transcripts for institutions that are not a part of the Minnesota State system. If you've attended more than one college, request official transcripts from each school.

The request process differs by school. We recommend choosing secure electronic PDF delivery when available. Contact your attended school for details. Official paper transcripts should bear institution letterhead. They must be prepared and sealed by the issuing school and mailed directly to:
