Transfer Pathways

As part of our Transfer Pathways program, we maintain articulation agreements with two-year colleges throughout Minnesota. Students earn their associate degree at one of our partner institutions, then transfer to St. Cloud State to earn their bachelor’s degree. This not only reduces the risk of losing credits in the transfer—it also saves you, as a student, time and money.
