Note: The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) will meet the University's liberal education requirements, but not the writing intensive requirements. You are not required to complete the MN Transfer Curriculum in order to apply to the University of Minnesota. Consult with a counselor at your current institution with questions regarding the MnTC.
CEHD admits transfer students into specific majors. All students are considered for admission based on an individual review of their application using the primary and secondary review factors listed below, in addition to the criteria described in the application instructions for the program students are applying to. These criteria include the specific prerequisite course and credit requirements for the individual program. Before applying, all students must meet the minimum admission requirements. However, meeting minimum prerequisite course, credit levels, and GPA requirements does not guarantee admission to a major. A variety of selection criteria are used to determine admission, including but not limited to, overall GPA, number of credits completed, and success in key courses.
Note: If you have not yet met the prerequisites for admission, you may still apply. It is sometimes possible to be admitted before meeting the requirements; however, your chances of admission significantly increase if you apply after meeting the prerequisites.
CEHD does not admit transfer students outside of specific majors. We advise students to stay at their current college and complete the admission requirements before applying to transfer.
Sign up for an information session to learn more about our majors, understand the application process, and have your questions answered.
