Apply as a Transfer Student

Follow this application process if you have earned college credits at another college and want to transfer those credits to SCTCC.

There is a non-refundable $20 application fee that can be paid at the time of application or applied to your account for future payment. The application fee is applied to the account even when a student is not able to attend SCTCC. 

  • If you have taken classes at a Minnesota State college, you do not need to send your transcript. SCTCC will access your Minnesota State transcripts electronically when you apply.

  • Send your high school transcripts or GED to SCTCC if you have graduated within the last 10 years.
