Transfer Information

Students seeking a transfer to our Computer Science or Information Technology Security programs, will find transfer information in the College of Science and Engineering, including transfer guides for students from several of the state's two-year programs.

Students who start classes in the fall should apply for admission to the major the following spring; students who start in the spring will apply for admission in summer.


  • Students must have a GPA of 2.5 at St. Cloud State and a GPA of 2.5 in all computer science courses for admission to the major.
  • Prior to admission to the major, students with necessary prerequisites will be given permission to register for major-only courses as needed.
  • Students should consult a transfer adviser at St. Cloud State as early as possible to obtain permission to register for classes.
  • A grade of C or higher is needed in all your major classes both at the community college and at St. Cloud State (a grade of C- is not acceptable).

How can I finish in two years?

Students who want to transfer into programs at St. Cloud State will find general answers and assistance at our Transfer Students site and Transferology.
