Transfer Credits

Transfer coursework is reviewed by the Office of Admissions to determine:

  • if your courses transfer
  • if a course meets any of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities (UMTC) Liberal Education Requirements, and
  • if the course has a direct UMTC course equivalent

You can find information about transfer credit review criteria at the Office of Admissions website. The Office of Admissions will decide if your transfer credit will be accepted. You can explore how courses transfer to the UMTC by using Transferology. If this is your first time using Transferology you will be asked to create a free account. Find out how to use Transferology to determine how your completed or in-progress coursework will transfer.

If you want to submit transfer courses that have not been evaluated in the past, visit the Office of Admissions "Transfer Credit Evaluation" webpage. If you have questions about how a course was evaluated, contact CLA Transfer Advising.

Use the side links to learn how your credit will apply toward liberal education requirements, second language, and major/minors requirements.
