Why Choose This Program

Plan to attend a college or university within the Minnesota State system and want to save money on your four-year degree? The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) is a great option for you.

The MnTC starts students at SCTCC to complete the first two years of their bachelor degree. After completing the SCTCC curriculum, students can easily transfer to the Minnesota State University of their Choice.

Our Minnesota Transfer Curriculum is a 40-credit package of general education courses that will be accepted for transfer by all Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. While specific courses may vary, students complete courses in 10 different goal areas. With so many bases covered, students in our transfer programs leave SCTCC as well-rounded graduates.

From Degree to Career

When you choose the MnTC degree at SCTCC, you’ll save money on your generals before transferring to get your bachelor's degree. The MnTC classes provide a good foundation for students who want to choose an additional program at SCTCC.

At SCTCC, we believe in choice. We have created an established agreement with seven Minnesota State universities to ensure our graduates can easily continue their education at the institution of their choice.

Students can choose to attend any of the following colleges:

  • Bemidji State University
  • Metropolitan State University
  • Minnesota State University, Mankato
  • Minnesota State University, Moorhead
  • St. Cloud State University
  • Southwest Minnesota State University
  • Winona State University

With so many options, students are certain to find the program and school that fits their academic needs and goals.

The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum is only 40 credits and makes up the core of an Associate’s degree. Both will transfer to a Minnesota State university, but you'll save some more money by getting more credits done with an Associate’s degree.

The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum is only 40 credits and makes up the core of an Associate of Arts degree. An associate’s degree is 60 credits, including the 40 credits of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum with an additional 18 credits of electives and 2 credits of wellness.

Typically, the first half of the Associates of Arts degree is the first half of a bachelor’s degree and can transfer virtually anywhere you decide to go. Both the associate or transfer program can seamlessly transfer to a Minnesota State university. However, if you’re looking to save money, getting your associate’s degree with SCTCC may be the best choice for you.
