Minnesota Transfer Curriculum

The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) is the result of a collaborative effort by all of the two- and four-year public colleges and universities in Minnesota to define a common philosophy toward general education. The goal of this effort is to help students transfer their work in general education. Completion of a defined transfer curriculum at one institution enables a student to receive credit for all lower-division general education upon admission to any other Minnesota State institution.

To complete the MnTC, students must satisfy the requirements of each of the 10 Goal Areas with a minimum of 40 credits. (Note that some courses satisfy more than one goal, but the number of credits for those courses will only be counted once.) Students must earn a minimum of a cumulative 2.0 GPA on the MnTC courses.
