Associate of Arts
An AA degree usually makes up the first half of a bachelor's degree at most colleges and universities. This is the most common transfer option at SCTCC.
Minnesota Transfer Curriculum
MnTC is a 40-credit package of general education courses that will be accepted for transfer by all Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.
SCTCC's Transfer Pathways are great options if you know what field you're going into. They include: Biology, Business, Engineering, Psychology, Theatre, and Spanish.
If you plan to get a bachelor's degree and beyond after your time at SCTCC, having a transfer plan early is key because every class will make a difference in how you move forward. Download a fillable PDF of each checklist where you can check off items and keep notes.

If you’re in one of SCTCC’s technical or professional programs – an AAS or AS – an articulation agreement means the classes you take for that program can transfer from SCTCC to a university toward a specific major.
For example, the architecture program at SCTCC has an articulation agreement with Minnesota State University Moorhead for their Construction Management bachelor’s degree. MSUM accepts architecture classes on top of any general education classes from SCTCC to count toward the bachelor’s degree.
The Minnesota Transfer website can help you figure out which SCTCC programs have articulation agreements with which universities or four-year colleges in Minnesota.
What if you’re planning on transferring to a college in a different state? And sometimes your classes can transfer even without an articulation agreement.
Use Transferology to find out how your credits will transfer - you will also get program info, course descriptions, and equivalent courses at other schools.
Another thing Transferology will do for you is figure out if credits will transfer back to your school. For instance, if you want to take a summer class at a college closer to home, it will tell you which class you need to take that will match what you need at the college you’re attending.
