Transfer Agreements with 2-year schools
An transfer agreement is a formal arrangement to transfer a defined set of academic credits between an academic program of one institution, most often a two-year post-secondary institution, to a program within a college or campus of the University of Minnesota system to fulfill general education or program requirements.
Benefits of a transfer agreement:
- Cost savings on tuition, fees, room and board
- Reduce chances of retaking the same coursework
- Move quickly from an Associate's degree to a Bachelor's degree at UMC

My favorite part of UMN Crookston so far has been the small class sizes. They create a more personalized learning environment to help students get the most out of their education. The faculty worked tirelessly to make my credit transfer as seamless as possible. They made sure that I was able to take all the classes necessary to reach my goals and make the most of my short time at UMC.Katie HumhejTransfer Student
What I like most about Crookston is that they have such a large option of classes to take within the major. I also enjoy being able to have such a wide variety of cultures within the school and all of my classes. The ability to go talk to your teachers if you have a question and they know who you are is also one of my favorite parts of Crookston.Morgan CollinsTransfer Student
