Admission Procedures for Undergraduates

Individuals applying for admission to Normandale Community College must:

  1. Apply online.
  2. Students with no previous college experience may submit high school transcripts or GED scores (not required for students with previous college experience). Students who anticipate receiving their high school diploma before starting at Normandale Community College may submit an unofficial high school transcript confirming that they are on track to meet their anticipated graduation date. Upon graduation, an official transcript that reflects the student’s final grades and date of graduation may be submitted to Normandale. Students who have already graduated from high school or earned a high school equivalency may request that their official transcript or GED scores be sent to the college electronically or via email.
  3. If applicable, submit official ACT, SAT, Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), International Baccalaureate (IB) or other score reports that may qualify the student for course placement (see the Course Placement section of this catalog for further information).
  4. Students with prior college experience should submit an official transcript from each college and university attended for transfer of credits and course placement review. Exception: Due to a System-wide initiative to facilitate the transfer of students between Minnesota State institutions, students who have completed coursework at another Minnesota State institution are not required to submit Minnesota transcripts at the time of admission. Students who complete courses at another institution after admission must contact the Normandale Records Office to have those courses transferred to Normandale.
